Newport Folk Concerts

  1. Newport Folk In it's original form, a true celebration of American music, branching from folk to bluegrass to the blues. Intimate performances beautifully recorded and restored.
  2. Roy Acuff and the Smokey Mountain Boys Newport Folk Festival Jul 27, 1968 Acuff and the boys brought a taste of Appalachia to the lawns of Newport in the summer of 1968.
  3. Arlo Guthrie: Cut-Up With a Conscience Hippie troubador/monologist and son of Woody Guthrie satirizes the FBI and rules on the beach in his wry spoken word intros to tunes in this '68 concert.
  4. Richie Havens, Newport 2008 Older, wise, and no less passionate, Havens entranced the Newport audience with songs old and new in this stellar set.
  5. Taj Mahal Even at this early stage of his career Taj Mahal was breathing new life into the blues and delivering charismatic performances.
  6. Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee A classic Sonny and Brownie performance. Close your eyes and be spirited away.
  7. Tim Buckley plays Newport Folk 1968 This performance reveals Buckley beginning to create the new musical hybrid that would anchor his legacy. This is folk music to be sure, but evolving into a form beyond folk's boundaries.
  8. Trey Anastasio Phish fans will love this set. Just Trey on acoustic guitar, playing a wide range of both Phish and solo material in evocative presentations.
