Newport Folk Festival, July 27 – 29
Founded in 1959, this early grassroots Vermont music festival known for hosting Bob Dylan and his electric guitar, has ballooned into the summer’s premier concert event. Situated inside the scenic Fort Adams State Park, this month’s stellar lineup includes acts from rockers to R&B singers.  We like the idea of Margo Price (you can listen to her podcast here), Charlie Parr, Cheech & Chong, Lucius and Irish songwriter, Glen Hansard under the summer sky. Listen to the festival here.
