Newport Folk Festival - 2013 Slide Show

The Newport Folk Festival does a great job of recognizing its illustrious history without being burdened by it. The times are always a-changing, and the festival has done a masterful job of adapting along with it.

In fact, some of the weekend’s best attended and most memorable acts hardly belong within the folk genre. Like Bombino, whose guitar playing wizardry conjures up sandstorms of hypnotic grooves; or the UK-punk rock of Frank Turner; or Trombone Shorty, who has successfully weaponized jazz and funk for mass consumption.

 The festival has broken new wave artists and expanded bands’ audiences, audiences that now stretch multiple generations. And each year sell-out crowds come to experience music that push buttons, blur borders and even inspire change - and that’s what folk music, and the Festival, is all about.

Enjoy some memorable moments from NFF 2013 in this slide show!

Jim James - Neptune Theatre - Seattle WA

Jim James of My Morning Jacket just released his latest solo album "Regions of Light and Sound of God" and he is touring hard to promote it. Although this was his last show of the tour before Bonnaroo and the Newport Folk Festival he was in full force and looked like he was ready for more!  

Jim James is on another level as a musician. His stage presence is pure insanity and it is hard to predict what he is going to do next…but you know its going to be good! I am not going to lie… I wish I was Jim James!
