Newport Folk Festival Features Cat Power, Kaki King, Jim James





While a portion of this year's Newport Folk Festival might not float your boat, a good number of the artists are top notch. Taking place on August 1 through August 3 in Newport, RI, the festival organizers have done a fantastic job at combining artists from various genres, including folk, indie, bluegrass, country, etc. Tickets go on sale next Wednesday, April 23 at 9am through festivalnetwork.com.
