Newport Folk Festival All Weekend

folk gull t-shirt Last weekend a Kings of Leon show shut down after just three songs when a pigeon pooped into the bass player’s mouth (HuffPo). And now here’s this T-shirt. What is going on? Do the birds want us all to shut up? Maybe just certain bands? At any rate, keep an eye on the sky this weekend at the Newport Folk Festival until we figure this out. Friday night starts at the International Tennis Hall of Fame — an evening of banjo and bluegrass with Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers. Then the festival moves to the three stages at Fort Adams State Park. On Saturday the Low Anthem play the Fort Stage from 12:35pm to 1:20pm, while the What Cheer? Brigade will play surprise sets throughout the day. Also on Saturday, Blitzen Trapper, and Andrew Bird. Then on Sunday good ol’ Levon Helm, Elvis Perkins in Dearland, Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, and Ben Sollee who my pal Genevieve loves to pieces. Go here for full schedule. The weather looks perfect!
