Jeff Tweedy is not only a vital figure in our ever evolving music scene, he’s also a keeper of it’s history. His multigenerational and multi-genre work is perhaps most evident in his collaborations with Mavis Staples, so it’s no wonder why the two have become fast friends. It goes without saying that we’re thrilled to welcome Jeff to our 2014 lineup, and based on what Mavis has to say, she is too:
“Hey everybody, this is Mavis. Have you heard the news? My dear friend, Jeff Tweedy, is coming to Newport to help me celebrate my 25th birthday…”

“The musical friendships that I forged in my college days are truly sacred to me and had the most profound impact as I set out to pursue a life in music. So I must admit that I’m a bit envious that Ed Helms, Jake Tilove and Ian Riggs, have been able to keep The Lonesome Trio, a band they formed two decades ago at Oberlin University, as a thriving creative outlet for so many years.”

Special Announcement: We regret to inform our fans that we will not be performing at the Newport Folk Festival this year due to an overwhelming desire to perform at this year’s Man Crush Festival.
That’s right. You can catch us supporting such acts as Tiny Tom (a tribute to Tiny Tim), Tee Rex (the world’s greatest golf themed T. Rex Parody band) and Forever Young (a real Neil tribute band from RI).
Newport’s great and all, but…

Actually, all jokes aside, we are delighted to announce that we will make our Newport Festival Main Stage debut in 2014.  We can’t wait. We have a special show planned for you. We’ll see you there amigos!

Why won’t you let me love you in the best way I know? We won’t go out to dinner and we won’t see a show. You’ll know just how I love you when I’ve got you alone.

I’ve been listening to this great band Lake Street Dive for the past couple of weeks. I’m really drawn to some straight up great music, and that’s what you get with this band. Some very talented musicians and great vocals! Anyway, I did this personal piece in the vain of a Rolling Stone record review. Enjoy! @lakestreetdive

Early afternoon concert break:

This is Lake Street Dive performing Jackson 5’s “I Want You back” in Boston. Today Ken Tucker reviews their new album Bad Self Portraits.

The quartet began performing together almost a decade ago while studying at the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston. Recently, producer T Bone Burnett invited them to play at a concert in NYC featuring the music of the Coen Brothers film Inside Llewyn Davis.

“On a dreary summer afternoon in 2009, I met up with Lake Street Dive in a living room in Jamaica Plain. They were living in Boston at the time, filling up the Lizard Lounge and Toad and the more intimate rooms of the city every chance they got to give their take on “free country” a run for its money.”
