newport folk fest
Hubby and I recently spent a weekend in Newport for the Folk Festival and I have to tell you it was so much fun!!!
The music was awesome, with legends like Richie Haven gracing the stage and Charlotte natives the Avett Brothers. But it was also an amazing venue to discover new music. The festival introduced me to musicians like Yim Yames, Andrew Bird, Sam Bush, and April Smith. It was also an opportunity to see a bunch of folks I’m already a fan of like Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Swell Season (from the movie Once), and Calexico.
Here’s a look at the sights and sounds from our weekend; shot completely from my iPhone.
*Thanks to Bernie and Anita for the tickets.
