Newport Folk Festival Roundup

Posted by cfmartinguitar

We can't believe this amazing weekend is over already!

The Newport Folk Festival began on Friday July 26th and ended on Sunday July 28th. This year's festival was one of the best in Newport Folk's history. And at every turn there was Martin!

Festival goers stopped by the Martin Jam Tent to show off their Martin pride. Attendees put on great performances and two lucky visitors left the festival with their very own Martin guitar. The tent also boasted a visit from Nicki Bluhm's band the Gramblers.

The Avett Brothers headlined the second day of the Newport Folk Festival playing their hits "I and Love and You," "Live and Die," and many more. You can even watch the Avett Brothers' set here.


The Lumineers had the entire crowed "ho-hey"-ing late Sunday afternoon.

And what may you ask was the perfect ending to the Newport Folk Festival? One word: Beck.
