The Live Local Music Festival, a celebration of the art and culture that defines Newport and Rhode Island as a whole, is set to take place on Saturday, July 21st.

Jamie Horoszko and Patrick Murphy, co-founders of the Festival, and musician Amato Zinno joined me on this edition of What’sUpNewp Radio Edition on AM 1540 WADK Newport to discuss how Live Local gives others from across the world a first-hand view of what it means to be a Newport local through art, music, food, history and more importantly, the people that make Newport such a beautiful, unique, and innovative place.
