And not what loves you back.

A new song by Jenny Lewis for the Girls’ soundtrack.
“Being a gentleman of a certain age, I remember when in the sixties I first became aware of the importance of what the Newport Folk Festival meant to the world. Proof positive that this unique spirit is alive and well in the 21st century is perfectly represented by friend, Ms. Jenny Lewis – singer/songwriter par excellence.”
– Gary Burden

Mavis Staples, 1962 (Jim Marshall)
"In 2001, Bob Dylan described the first time he heard Mavis Staples sing: "That just made my hair stand up, listening to that. I mean, that just seemed like, ‘That’s the way the world is.’"
Dear Folk, it is with great pleasure that we begin the 2014 rolling line-up by announcing Mavis Staples & Friends. Mavis has been celebrating her birthday at Newport since 1964. Therefore, in her honor, Newport Folk with the help of some special guests will celebrate “75 years of Mavis” throughout the weekend.
