Hour 2: Newporters

This hour features music from some of the musicians who performed at this summer’s Newport Folk Festival in Newport, Rhode Island. This is not music from the festival itself, but I think it’s a batch of interesting and creative music overall from some of the participants. Sounds like a great venue with some awesome music. Perhaps a future trip is in order!
