Newport RI is Rocking with the Folk Festival 2013

Newport Folk Festival 2013 | Newport RI Music Happenings

For me this is part of the RI coastal real estate of must do’s…living here and enjoying both the Newport Folk Festival and Newport Jazz Festival is a gift!  You must get creative and rent a boat, talk a friend into swimming Narragansett Bay with you over to it, rent hovercraft…there has to be a way to enjoy this music when it is sold out.  And the Newport Folk Festival is sold out of tickets right now.
Saturday, July 27 music headliners:
- the Avett Brothers, Jim James, Colin Meloy, Trombone Shorty & New Orleans Avenue, Father John Misty, Justin Townes Earle, Jason Earle, Iris Dement, Shovels and Rope, Frank Turner and the Sleeping Souls, Langhorne Slim & the Law, the Lone Bellow, Sarah Jarosz, Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers, Houndmouth, Elizabeth Mitchell and You Are My Flower, Rayland Baxter, Joe Fletcher’s Nashville to Newport, Mariachi Flor de Toloache, Musicwood
Sunday, July 28 music headliners:
- Beck, the Lumineers, Andrew Bird, Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy and Dawn McCarthy, the Felice Brothers, Beth Orton, Michael Kiwanuka, Lord Huron, Michael Hurley, Black Prairie, Tift Merritt, Spirit Family Reunion, Bombino, Cold Specks, Elizabeth Mitchell and You Are My Flower, Wheeler Brothers, Berklee Gospel and Roots Choir, Muscle Shoals
Restrictions on carry in items are stated clearly on the Newport Folk Festival web site.  Be advised there are no exceptions and there is food, beer and water for sale by vendors on site.
We are so proud and lucky to have George Wein’s initiative in starting this music venue in our RI state.  I have been drawn to the Folk Festival since I was a kid when big rockin’ names would power the music on.  The festival is now a blend of rock, folk, gospel, blues, reggae and more.  So much to appreciate for the true music lover.

Ginny, This sure sounds like an awful good time. I sure hope you get a chance to go. Don't forget to get some great pics for us. Love the one above, would love to see more.  Us "land dwellers" don't get near water near enough so please send the pics so we can at least dream of being there. Thanks.

Have been to the festival a number of time, but not recently. It was always a great adventure, great music and meeting lots of neat people.

Make it a great weekend!

Hi Ginny,

That's a whole lot of people on one beach at one time. Elbow room only. Everyone likes a good show. Why not have it on the beach?

Enjoy yourself at the shows.

Have a great day in North Kingstown.

Best, Clint McKie

Ginny, it's too short notice for this year but I've wanted to attend for some time now.  The website will be added so I can plan on next year's festivities.

Ginny Newport draws a lot of people as it is, it must be wall to wall people with this event going on, but it looks like it would be worth fighting the crowd :)
