Every year Newport Folk Festival throws a few curve balls our way. Be it with the announcement of Rodger Waters to the line up, surprise performances out at the Kids tent by artist like Connor Oberst, Tom Morello performing protest songs with fans on stage, Charles Bradley kissing and hugging fans in the press pit at the main stage or The Lumineers stopping in at the Museum stage to lead a workshop and play a few tunes. It is dizzying at times but that's what makes it so much fun. I always go into each year with a plan and by the end of day one that plan has completely been thrown out the window. Expect some unexpected surprises each year!
The Lumineers playing to a group of about 50 people at The Museum Stage 2013 & them also taking their performance off of the main stage into the crowd was pretty fun too!
