Newport Folk Festival – Free Album Download

Newport 1963 Bob Dylan

Newport 1963 Bob Dylan

Fifty years ago, a folk festival took root in Newport, R.I. This August, NPR Music, WFUV, Folk Alley and mvyradio will explore the legacy of the legendary festival and present live coverage of this year’s musical offerings. If you take a look at the 2009 line-up (some of which is represented on our sampler), you’ll find a slice of folk music then and now. Not only will you hear Pete Seeger (who was present at the festival’s creation) and Joan Baez, but you’ll also enjoy the rich harmonies of Oregon’s Fleet Foxes, the raw passion of Ramblin’ Jack Elliott and the sometimes punky folk of The Avett Brothers. Hear for yourself how the folk of now sounds alongside the folk of the past 50 years.
