Mavis Staples blowing out the candles on her birthday cake and Newport Folk Festival 2014…what a great weekend!
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 (???)”
Our friends Squarespace and The Wild Honey Pie want you to RSVP for a chance to board their boat at the Festival to watch live recording sessions with some of our festival artists. Click here to RSVP.
