Another Week of Newport Folk Festival Lineup Announcements
The Newport Folk Festival continues its lineup announcements and added an interesting act.
The announcement made over the past week is:
Field Report – an interesting-sounding trio from Wisconsin
J Mascis – a rock guitarist who is the founder of Dinosaur Jr.
So far, I’m already thrilled that I have a three-day ticket.
I plan to post the announcements weekly until NFF has completed the entire lineup. At that point, I might offer my opinions on the acts, once I know who is performing which day.
At this point, the only remaining type of ticket is the Friday single-day ticket. This is an amazing festival – even going for one day is worth it. Get your tickets now!!!
Friday: Haunt the House
Saturday: Courtney Barnett, Sturgill Simpson, Madisen Ward and The Mama Bear
Sunday: Field Report, J Mascis

I’m digging your blog. Love the reviews and format. It’s very inspiring! Wish I could get to the Newport this year. It’s on my bucketlist for festivals.
Thanks Andrew! Newport is lots of fun, not to mention great music!
It looks great every year. Someday I’ll get there. Someday…
This will be my 4th year… I’m a newbie!
Well I didn’t start to really diversify my music tastes until a few years ago. For a while it was almost all classic rock and metal. I’ve gotten way more into the blues folk and world music as I’ve gotten older.
Isn’t it wonderful discovering new styles you like? I always thought I hated country music and now there’s a lot of it I love!
Yeah its the best. Blues actually got me started playing guitar but I’ve gotten really into Celtic music. I love the instruments and melodies. It’s taking me longer to get into country but I think it’s coming.
Bluegrass! Love it! Similar to Celtic with the instruments and melodies.
Yeah bluegrass is soooo tough to play. I could never keep up with their banjo picking. The melodies go from haunting to happy.
Some day I’d like to learn to play a stringed instrument. When I retire and have time to do only things I love!
