Things we loved at Newport Folk Festival 2017

For the past six years, we’ve been attending the Newport Folk Festival, and every year we’re left wondering how Jay Sweet and his team of organizers, curators, and volunteers could outdo themselves. This year, they may have organized the best NFF to date, and this is taking into consideration that it’s nearly impossible to see every artist and band due […]

A Look Back at Newport Folk Fest ’16

A Look Back at Newport Folk Fest ’16

Every festival has a signature moment. It could be that one performance people will talk about for weeks after. It might be an expected collaboration that is recorded on every other attendee’s cellphone. Maybe it is a band digging deep into its catalogue to play a song not heard in years. Each Newport Folk Festival does not have a signature moment. […]

Mundo 50: RevueFest II

A year ago when the numerous festivals were announcing their lineups, we were joking around and exchanging names on the artists and bands we would invite if we could curate our own event. This little brainstorming session resulted in us sharing RevueFest, our make-believe, three-day festival. Like what we aimed to do here, the focus was on those hidden gems […]

The Mega, Mega Playlist of 2015

The Mega, Mega Playlist of 2015

Throughout the year, we’ve shared many of them through three regular features – The Melodic Tonic, The Matinee, and The Weekend Showcase. While we could have rolled up all those singles into one mammoth playlist, that would have meant a playlist of nearly 1,500 songs, not to […]

Finding redemption with Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats

Finding redemption with Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats

There is more to Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats than their scintillating performance The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon that had even the affable host gushing over them. Their music just isn’t intended to move you physically and have you dancing, as Fallon exclaimed in introducing the band, but at the heart of their self-titled debut album is a […]

Newport Folk Festival July 26th Guide

The first two days of the Newport Folk Festival have been wonderful. It’s the most memorable NFF that I’ve attended. Roger Waters supported by My Morning Jacket, G.E. Smith, and Lucius plus appearances by Amy Helm and Sara Watkins made for a special Day 1. Yesterday’s surprises weren’t as dramatic, although to see Gillian Welsh join The Decemberists along with […]
