Post-Show-Post: Newport Folk Festival
I've been keeping the blog portion of the blog pretty short these days. "Short and sweet," as they say. So I'll make it quick. This was my first trip to the Newport Folk Festival, and the energy was unlike anywhere else. Everything is about the music. The lineup was so carefully laid out, that you could actually catch a little bit of everything without missing too much.
To have been a part of Saturday night's festivities as everyone returns to town, sun-kissed and buzzed on a day's worth of incredible performances. To share the bill with an act as powerful and talented as The Lone Bellow (and to see Brian play my guitar...it's not often I can watch it from the audience.) To perform for some folks that I've held in a high regard for a long time, and to come home and write about it on this Squarespace website. This weekend was very special. To everyone at Squarespace, NPR Music, & WFUV - THANK YOU!
On to the next one, right?
