Day 2 of the 2017 Newport Folk Festival is in the books.

Although windy, cloudy and cool for most of the day, Saturday proved to be a great day to be at the Fort with big performances from Wilco, The Avett Brothers, Jim James, Drive By Truckers and many more absolutely putting on legendary Newport Folk Festival performances.
