The Newport Folk Festival continues its rolling lineup announcements with more excellent artists!

The announcements made over the past two weeks are:

Colter Wall – I have not seen this artist yet but friends whose opinions I trust love him so I cannot wait to see him!

Rachael & Vilray – You may not know this duo yet, but you will after they play NFF! They brought tears to my eyes when I saw them last summer…

The War and Treaty – This is another band I have not yet seen but friends flip over them (I know they were a huge hit on this year’s Cayamo cruise) so I am excited to see them!

Bedouine – This artist is unfamiliar to me so I am looking forward to being introduced to her music.

Gary Clark Jr. – My first time seeing him was at his NFF début and he thrilled the crowd! I expect more of the same!

Darlingside – One of my favorite bands is finally coming to NFF! I see them every chance I get and they never fail to impress me and the rest of their audiences! Do not miss this set!

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, the Festival is sold out; the right way to try to purchase a ticket is through their fan-to-fan ticket exchange. Get yourself on the waiting list – I know a lot of people who were able to purchase tickets last year through this site. This is an amazing festival – even going for one day is worth it. Get on the list now!!!

Friday:  Fantastic Negrito, Sturgill Simpson, Rachael & Vilray, Darlingside

Saturday:  Courtney Barnett, Tank and the Bangas, Colter Wall, Bedouine

Sunday: The Weather Station, The War and Treaty, Gary Clark Jr.

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!
