The Newport Folk Festival is next weekend, and FUV is once again headed to Fort Adams State Park with NPR Music to bring you some of the sights and sounds. Our coverage kicks off next Friday, with the opening night performance by Ryan Adams. Although the prolific songwriter has a deep catalog to draw from, we're likely in for a lot of new material as Ryan is set to release a self-titled album on September 9th. Listen in and find out, Friday at 6pm on 90.7FM or online. Then all weekend long, FUV will be at Newport's main Fort Stage, recording performances and posting them to the FUV Vault.

The National kicked off the first of three nights at Celebrate Brooklyn with an amazing performance in front of a sold out crowd in Prospect Park. The band ran through a nearly two hour set filled with fan favorites like "Bloodbuzz Ohio" and "Fake Empire" while mixing in some great surprises, too. They had the crowd captivated from start to finish, and it's clear that The National have taken their live show to a whole new level.

It was quite a night at Prospect Park Bandshell, as Jack Johnson and his band played in Brooklyn for the first time ever. And it was a perfect, laid-back start to a series of live broadcasts FUV will be doing from Celebrate Brooklyn this "Summer of FUV." Aside from playing songs from his latest album, To Here To Now To You, Jack treated the sold-out crowd to a setlist from all across his catalog, threw in a few covers, and invited up some special guests: Afie Jurvanen of Bahamas (who opened the show) and members of Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros.
