Newport Folk Festival Adds to The Lineup

The Newport Folk Festival continues its lineup announcements and added a couple of interesting acts (I wish there were more to announce to you!).

The announcement made over the past week is:

Leon Bridges – he’s described as southern soul meets gospel; sounds right up my alley!

First Aid Kit – I’m excited to see them back at NFF! Although I did not see their full set three years ago, I did see one of their Boston shows and loved them.

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, Leon Bridges

Saturday:  Courtney Barnett, Sturgill Simpson, Madisen Ward and The Mama Bear

Sunday: Field Report, J Mascis, First Aid Kit

I've loved the arts all my life... I go to a lot of concerts, take lots of photos and want to share them. Every once in a while I do something other than a concert, too. The Boston area is full of opportunities to indulge my passion - I'd like to help make it yours too!
