It’s good, we promise!
The first day of “Part 2” of “Folk On,” Newport Folk’s iteration of the 2021 Festival, was a resounding success. If you haven’t heard, the Festival reduced its capacity to 50% due to the pandemic. So, a pair of three-day mini-fests replaced the usual three-day weekend Festival.
Monday featured a good mix of music, from solo singer-songwriters (think Ben Gibbard) to raucous rock and rollers (think Middle Brother). Other highlights included Festival first-timers Sunny War and Andrea von Kampen as well as a memorable set from Brothers of a Feather, the (Black Crowes) Chris and Rich Robinson duo.
Photographers Ken Abrams and Gary Alpert were there and share some photos of the artists who played below.
