Newport Folk Festival 2008

We bring the festival love from the shoreline, across the airwaves, right to you.

The Newport Folk Festival

The Newport Folk Fest is an annual pilgrimage for us, and this year we brought some friends from NPR Music along.


We broadcast live with hosts Rita Houston (FUV) and Bob Boilen (NPR), and posted these sets for streaming on-demand on NPR Music:

Saturday, August 2:
Jakob Dylan | Steve Earle & Alison Moorer | She & Him (M. Ward & Zooey Deschanel) | Jim James (of My Morning Jacket)

Sunday, August 3:
Willie Mason | Brandi Carlile | Calexico | Gillian Welch
