The schedule was posted for the Newport Folk Festival. I now have to figure out who I want to see. Perhaps some of you readers know some of the acts and can point me in the right direction.
I plan on seeing the Cowboy Junkies, Trey (if he plays Runaway Jim, I will cream in my pants), and the Black Crowes on the first day. I want to see both Richie Havens and Jakob Dylan, so I’ll likely watch half of each.
The second day is more confusing… I know I’m going to check out Levon Helm (The Band is probably my favorite group ever, aside from Phish, of course), though I will check out the first half of the Son Volt set, and I know we’ll end up at the Buffett set, completely skipping the Avett Brothers to hopefully scout out a good seat for Jimmy (pun intended).
This is my first music festival ever. I wish they had set times the same for each stage, and no overlapping sets (though I guess that’s so they don’t end up with set breaks on all 3 stages at the same times). If any of you readers wouldn’t mind taking a look at the schedule and give your suggestions in the comments, I’d greatly appreciate it. When I have the time, I plan on looking up each of the artists and figuring out who sounds the most interesting.
I suppose I should also print out a copy of the schedule to bring with me so I know who it is I’m watching. Anyway, thanks in advance for the suggestions (Jenny, I’m hoping you actually read this and make some suggestions).
