The Avett Brothers: Newport Folk Festival 2009
The Avett Brothers stomped and hollered high-energy songs from its new album at Newport Folk.
Emmylou Harris: Newport Folk Festival 2011
Emmylou Harris' Grammy-festooned career stretches back more than 40 years, to her legendary early collaborations with the late country-folk legend Gram Parsons. Hard Bargain, her new album, is suffused with mourning, both for Parsons (in "The Road") and for her late friend Kate McGarrigle, whom she memorably memorializes in "Darlin' Kate." But the Country Music Hall of Famer still knows where and how to locate sweetness and joy in her music, and she remains vital and contemporary. Here, Harris closes out the 2011 Newport Folk Festival in Newport, R.I. joined on stage by many special guests: Pete Seeger, The Civil Wars, David Wax Museum and more.
Nickel Creek In Concert: Newport Folk 2014
Nickel Creek recently reunited to put out its first album in eight years, A Dotted Line, which naturally reflects its members' creatively ambitious recent pursuits.
Jason Isbell: Newport Folk Festival 2015
Barely a week after releasing Something More Than Free, Jason Isbell took the stage at Newport Folk for a set that highlighted many of the new songs from that album. Isbell has attained star status in the alt-country world, but his performance channeled the best of the southern rock tradition that emerged in north Alabama and Georgia in the 1970s — two places where Isbell lived and worked before relocating to Nashville.
