27 Days till Newport Folk Festival 2015 | The Spirit of Newport

This outtake from Newport Folk Festival 2014 makes me smile.  It has been fun to watch the Folk family continue to grow.  The guys from Spirit Family Reunion have become a big part of the fun each weekend.  Some of the kindest and fun loving people you'll ever meet.  Damn good musicians too.   Nothing but love for Jerron "Blind Boy" Paxton backstage in the Artist tent. Jerron is a freak of nature.  A true Delta Bluesman and all around nice guy.  To me this image is the spirit of what makes Newport so fun.  It is one big family reunion of sorts.  No ego, no drama, just a love for music, a good time, and having fun.  Sam Doores of the The Deslondes pictured far right as also become a big part of the Newport Folk Family.
