Emmylou Harris
Newport Folk Festival

Day two (7/31) of Newport Folk Festival featured performances by The Cave Singers, Wanda Jackson, Justin Townes Earle, Middle Brother, Elvis Costello, M. Ward, Emmylou Harris and others. If you missed the fest, you can listen to archives of the sets at NPR.

Like they've done in the past, Emmylou Harris and Elvis Costello performed together on one of Elvis's songs. She performed guest vocals with him and The Imposters on "Scarlet Tide."

Mountain Man also played day two of the fest. Pictures of their set are HERE. Pictures from the first day are HERE. The rest from day two, below...

In journalism school I learned that one of the most important of the 7 news values is TIMELINESS.

These folk guys all look like they work as bartenders at some pretentious Williamsburg restaurant that serves seasonal, locally sourced, organic cuisine.

The more folk music I hear, the more money I spend at batting cages

What will happen to folk music when the last Baby Boomer mercifully drops dead?

Wow, so many negative comments. Newport was fantastic. Worth every penny.

I'm not even close to being a baby boomer, and saw so many great bands that weekend.
