Newport Folk Fest 2013 // The Essential Playlist

newport folk essential playlist / a thousand threads
I’ve been singing since I came home, so I thought I’d share a few songs from my favorite shows.

I didn’t include the Avett Brothers, Lumineers, or Frank Turner here because I think you’re probably already in love (if there are any there you haven’t heard, though — run, don’t walk). These are the bands that are waiting to be loved just as much.

So if you’re not already listening, check them out. Folk Fest always catches the best of the best.

And if you’re thinking it’s all banjos and harmonicas… think again. Folk is an ethos, not a sound, and no festival understands that better than Newport.Β  There’s a little something for pretty much anyone on there (although, okay… I’ll admit… there are a few banjos and harmonicas too).

    Yay!!! So excited to give this a listen. I’m from NC and have been following the Avetts since they first started and it is so fun to see them all over the country/world now. Hooray for finding other new artists!
