Newport Folk Festival: The Kossoy Sisters

Newport Folk Festival: The Kossoy Sisters

Newport Folk Festival is all about tradition and family. It isn’t odd to see various artists hopping on stage with one another for a vocal cameo or just to join in on the fun of another band’s sound. Friends are made and kept for many years to come. So having Newport Folk Festival welcome back […]

Newport Folk Festival: Deep Dark Woods

Newport Folk Festival: Deep Dark Woods

The second day of Newport rolled in as the sailboats set out into the soft grey skies over the Harbor on Sunday morning. Canadian alternative country band, Deep Dark Woods, took the Harbor side stage first to ease the audience into their second full day of the festival. Front man Ryan Blodt, guitarist Burke Barlow, […]

Newport Folk Festival: Sleepy Man Banjo Boys

Newport Folk Festival: Sleepy Man Banjo Boys

Sunday’s music began with Sleepy Man Banjo Boys on the Fort stage. The weather might have been a little chilly, but kits were flying high in the air as the talented trio took the stage. They delivered that country twang and it started to feel like the ’50s with old time tracks that sounded like […]

Newport Folk Festival: City and Colour

Canadian singer and songwriter Green was the former vocalist for post-hardcore band Alexisonfire and has since been active in the acoustic and folk music scene. Green typically tours with a full band but tonight […]

Newport Folk Festival: Guthrie Family Reunion

Newport Folk Festival: Guthrie Family Reunion

There was one act on Saturday that was cheerful and fun despite the heavy amount of sorrow it carried beneath the music. The Guthrie Family Reunion group took the stage, armed with all sorts of folk instruments, for a tribute to their father and grandfather (respectively), Woody Guthrie. Made up of several of his children […]

Newport Folk Festival: Patty Griffin

Newport Folk Festival: Patty Griffin

She’s won a Grammy award, has had her songs covered by Emmylou Harris and Kelly Clarkson, and she sung what was perhaps the most intriguing lyric from day one at Newport: “You could cry or die or just make pies all day.” But while the meaning to her song “Making Pies” can be disputed, it’s […]

Newport Folk Festival: honeyhoney

Newport Folk Festival: honeyhoney

The staff at WERS have been more or less stalking honeyhoney for a few months now. It started at SXSW this past Spring in Austin, Texas, and soon after that, we invited the folk duo for an in-studio performance in Boston. Now we found Suzanne Santo and Ben Jaffe at the Harbor stage at Newport […]

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. The six-piece New York City group induced much hand-clapping during their set […]
