Newport Folk: Saturday Highlight

We’re back at the Fort, and getting ready for day two… we’ll be streaming live from the main stage… and it’s an incredible lineup! Just visit throughout the day to hear Tao Rodriguez Seeger, Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, The Avett Brothers, The Swell Season, and possibly Levon Helm (he has yet to approve streaming).

Yesterday was a wonderful experience. I think the highlight musically for me was hearing Dawes on the Quad Stage. It’s the stage closest to our little tent, so I can hear it quite clearly. These four guys out of Los Angeles are relatively new to the music scene, and I really think they may be my favorite up and coming band at the moment. They’ve got a unique sound… a blend of indie, folk, and rock.  Their set yesterday really attracted a lot of attention and they played a few songs extra after being encored. The lead singer has a great voice that sort of cuts through the well blended sounds of the band and the other members frequently add really solid harmonies. Check out their set on our website: Click on “Download Performances”, and “All 2010 Recordings” to find Dawes
