Newport Folk Fest this weekend, Elvis Perkins replaces Justin Townes Earle who is injured & cancelled 2 shows

one of these hands is injured…

“Unfortunately Justin’s shows this coming weekend will be cancelled. He injured his hand this past weekend and has 19 stitches and there’s no way he can play guitar. We apologize for any inconveniences. We’re working on rescheduling the Iron Horse show for late August and hope to make an announcement on that soon.”

One of those cancelled shows is the Newport Folk Festival which happens this weekend. Elvis Perkins and Dearland replace Justin on the bill.

Justin’s next still-scheduled show takes place on Governors Island on August 8th with Josh Ritter & The Royal City Band and Dawn Landes & the Hounds. It’s free! (and definitely still happening with Justin as of now)

John Prine plays Newport Folk Saturday, and a show on Governors Island on September 10th.

Yim Yames, who has contributed to a John Prine tribute CD, plays Newport Folk Saturday and a show in NYC tonight with Ben Sollee and Daniel Martin Moore and Preservation Jazz Band who all play Newport Folk on Sunday.
