Jim James, who has played Newport numerous times with projects including My Morning Jacket and Monsters of Folk, in a rambling email
PROVIDENCE, R.I. — The band Deer Tick, which got its start in Rhode Island, had to find another way to get home for the Newport Folk Festival when U.S. Airways refused to let a member on board with his guitar, the band tweeted Wednesday:
"Just got kicked off a @USAirways flight cuz they wouldn’t let me bring my guitar on board. @Newportfolkfest here I come!!… via @Amtrak"
@Newportfolkfest replied: “They messed with the wrong Folking band.”
Another user posted a link to an article on Redditthat said it’s legal to bring guitars on flights. @deertickmusic answered: “i showed them that. I was told US Airways doesn’t follow FAA rules (???)”

Newport Folk 2014 OEB Spotlight: Tall Tall Trees – “Waiting On the Day”
Pairs Well With…Kishi Bashi, Andrew Bird, My Morning Jacket
It’s been two years since Tall Tall Trees’ expansive sophomore record Moment was released and the hope here is that NYC songwriter has embraced even more of his weird side for his upcoming 2014 follow-up.

Phox is the artist of the weekend
Folk: It’s that time of year again; the one week countdown is upon us. So here’s our annual reminder of what we can all do to prepare and ensure it’s one for the ages.
BE PREPARED FOR ALL WEATHER: Believe us it’ll change drastically throughout the weekend. No matter what happens, remember it’s an adventure
BE KIND: to each other, to the artists, to the staff, and mostly to the large number of volunteers who make the festival happen.
BE PRESENT: We’re all coming to a speck of land in the sea to commune around music. Everything else is secondary.
NO EXPECTATIONS: We’re all nervous & excited, but the only certainty is that what we expect will happen, probably won’t. That’s why it’s fun.
SAFTEY IS SACROSANCT: We take this part VERY seriously. In case of weather/ emergency we may make hard decisions, but safety is paramount. ALWAYS.
LIVE MUSIC: Let’s face it, it’s what it’s all about. It’s our therapy, our inspiration, our coffee, our muse, our passion. And we are incredibly fortunate for the chance to share in it, together, for 3 full days.
We are counting the days, hours, minutes, seconds until we see you, our extended Folk Family, until then…
