The Newport Folk Festival Lineup Gets Even Better, As If That Were Possible!

The Newport Folk Festival continue its lineup announcements and – as expected – they are winners!

The announcements made over the past week are:

J.P. Harris – He’s a country artist who is an excellent addition to the lineup. How can you not like an artist with the website URL “i lovehonkytonk”!

Violent Femmes – Honestly, I barely know their music but I am excited to be able to experience this legendary band.

Banditos – More honky-tonk? Yes, please!

I plan to post the announcements weekly until NFF has completed the entire lineup. At that point, I might offer my opinions on which acts to see, once I know who is performing which day.

This festival has been sold out for a while. If you go to the festival’s website, there is a place for people to re-sell tickets if you are interested in purchasing some from fans, not scalpers. This is an amazing festival – even going for one day is worth it.

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!
