Newport Folk Festival: Spirit Family Reunion

Newport Folk Festival: Spirit Family Reunion

Spirit Family Reunion were the second band to play Newport’s Harbor stage this weekend, and even with being so early in the lineup, they delivered a performance I’m sure to be using as a standard for others for the remainder of the festival.
