Tunesday With George: Ponderosa & Newport Folk Festival Recap

This week's pick:

This weekend we took an amazing trip to Rhode Island for the Newport Folk Festival, which is easily my favorite (and the most laid back) festival I've ever been to...beautiful setting, fantastic music, and relaxing atmosphere. Other than getting stuck in a downpour for an hour or so on Saturday night, which was a fun adventure in hindsight, the weekend was perfect. 

NPR sponsored the show, and you can stream them all HERE. These are the acts we were able to catch between Friday night and Sunday afternoon:
Blitzen Trapper
Robert Ellis
Jonny Corndawg, aka Jonny Fritz & The In-Laws (featuring Taylor Goldsmith of Dawes)
Deer Tick
Alabama Shakes
Iron & Wine
Patty Griffin
Guthrie Family Reunion
My Morning Jacket

Trampled By Turtles
New Multitudes (Jay Farrar, Jim James, Will Johnson, and Anders Parker)
Charles Bradley
Gary Clark, Jr.
Great Weekend!
