Newport Folk Festival Line-Up Additions

It keeps on coming!  The Newport Folk Festival continues its lineup announcements and added even more interesting acts.

The announcements made over the past week are:

Watkins Family Hour – I’ve heard such good things about them and hope I can see them this year!

Lord Huron – I caught part of their set one year and hope this year I can catch their entire set!

Christopher Paul Stelling – Joe Fletcher loves him, and that’s good enough for me!

José González – I know nothing about this Swedish folksinger but he sounds interesting

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, The Lone Bellow, Bahamas, Heartless Bastards, Calexico, Iron & Wine and Sam Bridwell, Joe Pug, Watkins Family Hour

Saturday:  Courtney Barnett, Sturgill Simpson, Madisen Ward and The Mama Bear, Langhorne Slim & The Law, Brandi Carlile, The Suffers, Traveller, Nikki Lane, José González

Sunday: Field Report, J Mascis, First Aid Kit, The Jones Family Singers, Laura Marling, Blake Mills, Shakey Graves, Lord Huron, Christopher Paul Stelling

About suze72

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!
