Each Summer we always make our way to a favorite and a classic – The Newport Folk Festival in Newport, RI. Smack on the water in a century-old fort, it’s an intimate one. And it’s not the folk festival of old… On the same ground where Johnny Cash introduced a little known Kris Kristofferson and  Bob Dylan shocked with an electric set, you might now see the likes of Mumford & Sons, Margo Price, St. Vincent, Phosphorescent, Tank & The Bangas, Lukas Nelson, Lucius or Hozier.

This year the line-up at the folk-fest didn’t disappoint, with the likes of Sheryl Crow, Jeff Tweedy, Preservation Hall Jazz band, Warren Haynes, Maggie Rogers, Brandi Carlile who lead an all-female set that ended with the awesome Ms. Dolly Parton who brought the house down! The big finale was Kermit The Frog (yes you read that right) doing a rather good duet with Jim James (My Morning Jacket).

IF YOU DIDN’T MANAGE TO GET YOUR FOLK ON THIS YEAR, BOOK YOUR TICKETS FOR NEXT YEAR AS SOON AS THEY GO ON SALE!
