Today I celebrate Newport Folk Festival with an entire show dedicated to one of my most favorite weekends. As this year is the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 team landing on the moon (and cutting James Taylor’s performance short on July 20th, 1969) I kick things off with a set celebrating the ’69 festival. I also highlight the new Song of the Week “Everyone’s Gone To The Moon” from Robert Ellis, play you some songs from a few favorite moments at the fort, let you in on some amazing tracks from our #Hottakes post, and so much folkin’ more!
