The Head and the Heart played another awesome set this year. I was gifted some photo pit passes this time around. Folk Fest, 2012.
“From the moment you pull in to Fort Adams State Park, with its views of the Newport Harbor and the Narraganssett Bay, it’s clear that this is a special setting for a weekend of ‘folk’ music. While every performer at the Newport Folk Festival has some sort of traditional foundation, this year’s festival stretched the folk label to include such acts as My Morning Jacket and Alabama Shakes. To the conservatives this may seem like a step in the wrong direction, but the audience definitely skewed younger and more enthusiastic than at prior incarnations of the festival. Add to the wider scope of performers a brilliant layout that prevented stage noise crossover, and the beautiful setting, and you have all the necessary ingredients for a perfect festival.”
