This podcast is fast becoming a part of the Newport Folk tradition. Another way to get pumped up for the musical event of the year.

The dirty kid in the corner

I moved to Newport almost two years ago. There are many things I like about the town (and some things I don’t) but the folk festival is probably my favorite (besides the lovely community of friends I have here). I am originally from the midwest and at times I miss the hospitality and slowness of home. However, the festival brings that sense of community that can be missing in Newport if you aren’t Irish, Catholic, Irish Catholic, or a football fan. This podcast has that homey sense. It introduces artist as if you are sitting at your kitchen table with them. It doesn’t feel pretentious or showy—it’s just about the music and the community—recognizing that even the dirty kid in the corner is important (listen to the Feb 5th edition to understand that if you don’t). I only with you could do a show corresponding to each artist the week they are announced. That would be lovely.

Must-listen for fans of the Folk Fest

So far great behind-the-scenes look at the fest. Looking forward to more stories and artist interviews.
