Newport Folk Festival

Saturday, Jul 28, 2012 10:00a
Fort Adams State Park Newport, RI

This year's event balances a strong mix of contemporary bands (My Morning Jacket, Dawes)with a roster of respected veterans (Jackson Browne, Spider John Koerner). As usual, it's all over the musical map, with ( Iron & Wine) and bluegrass ( Punch Brothers) to jazz (Preservation Hall Jazz Band) and soul (Charles Bradley).--James Reed, Globe Staff
