Who Had More Fun, The Band Or The Audience?

I am not sure I can say it was not the band who had more fun at the Glorietta show at Brighton Music Hall this week. Many of you may not be aware of this collaboration, which was in the middle of its one-and-done tour, but they are a group of friends who happen to be extraordinarily talented musicians who decided to tour together for a short while. Oh, and release an album too.

It seems like we are nearing the end of the lineup announcements, but I believe there are still a few more to come. Stay tuned!

Newport Folk Festival Hits A Grand Slam!

Then again, it always does for me and the 10,000 others who buy tickets before the first artist is announced for the Newport Folk Festival (NFF)! The 2018 NFF is already sold out, but you can join the fan-to-fan ticket exchange where tickets are resold at face value – get yourself on the list!

Jay Sweet announcing the first set of the 2017 NFF

We trust in Jay Sweet and everyone who selects the artists who perform at NFF. Every year I discover at least one new artist with whom I fall in love, and this year was no exception! In case you don’t read all the way to the end, there is one important point I want to make. Yes, NFF is about the music but it is also about the Folk Family. I have made so many friends at NFF over the six years I have attended, and we all share a love of the music and the community. From the photographers with whom I share the photo pit and the media tent to the folk fans and the great friends I have made, you are what keep me going back! It is a beautiful thing!
