Newport Folk Festival Line-Up Adds A Number Of Unknown Acts (To Me, At Least)
The Newport Folk Festival continues its lineup announcements and added some acts whose names are not familiar to me, but that does not matter! I look forward to being introduced to them.
The announcements made over the past week are:
Hiss Golden Messenger – David Bowie is quoted as saying they are ‘mystical country’… I am intrigued!
The Tallest Man on Earth – I have heard good things about him so he has been on my list to see.
Tommy Stinson – He will be playing with Luther Dickinson (love him!), Catherine Popper, and Frank Ferrer
Elephant Revival – Another band about which I have heard a lot of positive things, but any band with Charlie Rose in it has to be terrific!
I continue to be 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!!!
