For Pete’s Sake
Smithsonian Folkways presents J.P. Harris’ Outside Folk at the Newport Folk Festival on Saturday and Sunday July 27-28 on the museum stage – featuringRamblin’ Jack Elliott with Andy Hedges; John Cohen (New Lost City Ramblers) with The Downhill Strugglers; Judy Collins with Ari Hest; andAlice Gerrard with Tatiana Hargreaves & Allison DeGroot. Outside Folk was born of the desire to honor torch-bearing legends of Folk music and pair them with younger, traditionally influenced musicians at the forefront of the “new folk movement.” These sets aim to show an artistic correlation across generations, create a unique musical moment in history, and honor those who have existed at the edges of tradition.
