Wow, The Newport Folk Festival Lineup Gets Even Better (If That Is Possible)!
The Newport Folk Festival continues its amazing lineup announcements!
The announcements made over the past two weeks are:
Joseph – I know nothing about this trio but I like what I’ve listened to since the announcement
C.W. Stoneking – I saw this Australian powerhouse last year and fell in love with him and his all-female band!
Nancy and Beth – I had never heard of this duo before seeing them last year but really enjoying seeing them (Megan Mullally and Stephanie Hunt).
Berklee Gospel & Roots Choir – They are always a fabulous way to start Sunday!
Chicano Batman – They are fabulous live and a great addition to the folk family.
Grandma’s Hands Band – It is anyone’s guess what this is, but whatever it is will be fun!
Shovels and Rope – This wonderful husband and wife duo are always a joy to see.
Carl Broemel – I became familiar with him as a member of My Morning Jacket, but had the opportunity to see him solo (well, with the other members of MMJ except Jim James) and loved the show.
Mt. Joy – I am unfamiliar with this band but look forward to listening to them before the 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!!!
