The Newport Folk Festival Lineup Adds More Terrific Artists
The Newport Folk Festival continues its lineup announcements!
The announcements made over the past week are:
A Tribute to Chuck – Chuck Berry passed away a couple of weeks ago, and I expect this to be a touching and powerful tribute.
Benjamin Gibbard – He is another artist who I keep missing, and am thrilled that I have the opportunity this summer!
The Wild Reeds – There has been a lot of buzz about this trio which has also been on my radar!
Joshua Hedley – A country musician from Nashville – what’s not to like???
Michael Kiwanuka – The only time I have seen him is at NFF and am excited that he is returning!
Mandolin Orange – I saw them last year opening for a NFF alumnus, so I look forward to a full set from this talented duo.
The Avett Brothers – The first time I saw this band was at NFF and cannot wait to see them again here!
L.A. Salami – His name is not familiar but I love being introduced to new artists at this festival!
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.
At this point, there are no remaining tickets, but you can sign up here for the official fan exchange. This is an amazing festival – hope to see you at the Fort!!!
