The Newport Folk Festival Lineup Continues To Amaze
The Newport Folk Festival continues its rolling lineup announcements with more excellent artists! I wish I did not have to wait so long to be back at the Fort – one of my happiest places!
The announcements made over the past two weeks are:
Tyler Childers – This Americana artist has been on my radar to see! It is as if NFF is reading my wish list this year… Well, every year to be honest!
Passenger – This is another artist I do not know but I am looking forward to the introduction to this acoustic roots/folk performer.
Hamilton Leithauser + Rostam – I know Leithauser but not Rostam, but the collaborations at NFF are always amazing and this should be too.
Phoebe Bridgers – I am completely unfamiliar with her but I trust NFF’s opinions.
The Lone Bellow – My introduction to this marvelous Americana band was at their first NFF appearance; I was blown away then and I continue to be wowed by them.
JD McPherson – I saw him for the first time last year and fell in love with his music, so I am thrilled this bluesy roots rocker will be at the Fort this summer.
Charlie Parr – I know his name but this folk artist seems to fit right into the NFF family.
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!!!
