I wasn’t kidding when I tweeted the other day that I couldn’t stop thinking about the Newport Folk Festival after it was all over. There is absolutely no dissonance within the sisters’ opinions here, we both agree the festival brought out the best in every single person that was involved—both on stage and off, behind the scenes and out front watching in a spectator capacity. A total and complete love of the creation, expression and soaking in of music dominated, and the air in Newport was thick with a feeling of good will and love toward one another, which no doubt stems from and is encouraged by those who are behind the festival itself. The love shared is a two way street at the Newport Folk Festival. The fans and the bands love the Newport Folk Festival, and the Festival loves right back.
We are just about ready to release a whole slew of photos from this legendary event, including Deer Tick, First Aid Kit, Jonny Corndawg, Apache Relay and many many more. Stay dialed in to the SisDiss channel for that as well as a recap of our experiences there as we share the love.
