Newport Folk Festival
Fort Adams State Park
July 26th – 28th
We’re particularly excited to see Hey Marseilles, The Felice Brothers and are eager for return of Spirit Family Reunion. Big name acts like Feist, Beck and The Avett Brothers will be respectively headlining each night and there will be a heavy dose of folk, bluegrass and Americana with some New Orleans brass and gospel thrown in for good measure.
Must see acts include Trombone Shorty, JD McPhereson, The Milk Carton Kids, Phosphorescent, Michael Kiwanuka and Father John Misty, to name a few. You can view the full schedule and line up here: http://www.newportfolkfest.net/doc/NewportFolk-2013schedule.pdf
