The lineup for the [insert corporate sponsor name] Newport Folk Festival rolled out this morning. Who's coming between August 4-6? The slate includes Indigo Girls, Mary Gauthier, David Gray, Patty Larkin, Sonny Landreth, Rosanne Cash, and - unless she disappears again - Madeleine Peyroux.
The jazz festival, which runs August 11-13, features: Dave Brubeck, Kenny Barron, John Pizzarelli, Jane Monheit, George Benson, and Al Jarreau. But most intriguing is the Waterside stage lineup with Marc Ribot and a group (Cyrus Chestnut, James Carter, Reginald Veal & Ali Jackson) performing the music of Pavement.
