The Ever-Expanding Newport Folk Festival Lineup
Week 12 started off with something different!
The Festival announced today that, while there are additions to be made to the lineup, those additions will be made when they are able. That means my regular Thursday post about the lineup is ending and I will post as the acts are announced.
This week’s additions to the Festival lineup are:
The Bluegrass Situation – they will be presenting a workshop stage with lots of special guests
All Newport’s Eve – this is not a part of the Folk Festival but many of the artists who have been announced so far are already part of the Folk Family, including Joe Fletcher who is curating the event
The Haden Triplets – having an album produced by Ry Cooder (not to mention being the daughters of jazz great Charlie Haden) is all I needed to read to make me excited about seeing them at the Festival
The lineup, so far, includes:
Friday: The Devil Makes Three, Band of Horses, Death Vessel, Jenny Lewis, Phox, Robert Hunter, Reignwolf, Jimmy Cliff, Lake Street Dive, Tall Tall Trees, Noah Gundersen, Ryan Adams, Anais Mitchell and Jefferson Hamer, Sun Kil Moon, Mandolin Orange, Deering Banjos Presents Communion
Saturday: Shakey Graves, The Oh Hellos, Benjamin Booker, Nickel Creek, Shovels and Rope, Houndmouth, J. Roddy Walston & The Business, The Milk Carton Kids, Aoife O’Donovan, Willie Watson, Puss n Boots, Lucius, Deer Tick, Kurt Vile and the Violators, John Reilly and Friends, Pokey LaFarge, The Haden Triplets
Sunday: Hurray for the Riff Raff, Mavis Staples, Thao & The Get Down Stay Down, Trampled by Turtles, Gregory Alan Isakov, Lucero, Caitlin Rose, Conor Oberst, Dawes, Rodrigo y Gabriela, Leif Vollebekk, The Lonesome Trio, Jeff Tweedy, Valerie June, The Deslondes, Ages and Ages, The Berklee Gospel and Roots Choir, Pegi Young and The Survivors, The Bluegrass Situation
