Courtney Barnett is an Australian singer, songwriter, and musician.

Newport Folk Festival began announcing their lineup last year on February 1, 2017, and wrapped up on May 26th.

The Newport Folk Festival will take place at Fort Adams State Park on July 27th, 28th, and 29th. Tickets for the 2018 Newport Folk Festival on November 29th, 2017, and quickly sold out.
