Recap: Newport Folk Festival 2018 – Day 2

By Will Oliver, August 20th 2018 — with 3 comments

Following Day 1 of Newport Folk Festival it was time for Day 2, which may have been the busiest day of the festival I’ve ever had in my four years of covering it. We caught 15 acts throughout the day, keeping us plenty busy moving across the Fort all day.

We started with a soulful performance from Curtis Harding, followed by a chill performance by Bedouine. Things kicked up a few gears with sets from Hiss Golden Messenger and Lukas Nelson (Willie’s son) & Promise Of The Real, and then Nicole Atkins, who hosted a unique performance dubbed “Nicole Atkins Digs Other People’s Music,” which saw her show off the solo music of some of her touring bandmates, who she played alongside. We were next impressed by the guitar work of Sweden’s Daniel Norgren and then were treated to a main stage performance from Valerie June.

Recap: Newport Folk Festival 2018 – Day 1

By Will Oliver, August 19th 2018 — with 5 comments

The end of July can only mean one thing: a return to the Fort for another year at Newport Folk Festival. It’s always great to return to Newport for this festival, which is truly in a league of its own. You will find nothing but good music and passionate fans and everything else gets left behind. This is probably the only music festival in America where it’s literally all about the music and it makes all the difference in the world.

Day 1 kicked off with a lively set from Fantastic Negrito, followed by Amanda Shires, who also is a part of Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit and just happens to be Isbell’s wife. A firey set from JD McPherson was next, followed by an intimate performance by Erika Wennerstrom of Heartless Bastards at the Museum Stage.

In May Parquet Courts returned with new album Wide Awake! via Rough Trade Records and it’s unsurprisingly yet another fantastic album from the band who are proving to be one of the most reliable bands of this decade. They took part in this year’s Northside Festival in unique fashion dubbing their three shows over the weekend with the marquee of “Land, Sea, and Air.” The land show was at Public Arts, the sea show was on the Liberty Belle Rocks Off Concert Cruise boat, while the air show took place on Elsewhere’s Rooftop space.
