Get to the merch tent early. We had the honor to work with two amazing artists on this year’s posters – Rhode Island’s very own Will Schaff and Grammy Award winning designer Gary Burden.

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 (???)”
Working on a series of typography posters.

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.
