David Crosby joined Jason Isbell onstage at Newport Folk Festival (watch)
Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit headlined Friday (7/27), the first day of the 2018 edition of Newport Folk Festival. Near the end of a set that drew largely from their excellent 2017 album The Nashville Sound, Jason welcomed a very special guest to the stage for a couple of songs – the legendary David Crosby. David joined the band for Crosby, Stills & Nash’s “Wooden Ships” and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young’s “Ohio.” Watch a full song videos of both songs below, and check out the full setlist.
