Jim James, Michael Kiwanuka & More Added to Newport Folk Festival Line-up

Today, the Newport Folk Festival, which takes place July 26 - 28, announced that Jim James will be returning to the festival this summer.  As mentioned previously, the festival has been using the trickle method to announce this year's artists.  Over the last several days they've announced Michael Kiwanuka, Jason Isbell, Nicki Bluhm & The Gamblers as well as the return of the Spirit Family Reunion who wowed the crowd last year.  I recommend getting tickets now before they sell-out!

  • Jim James
  • Jason Isbell
  • Nicki Bluhm & The Gamblers
  • Spirit Family Reunion
