The Newport Folk Festival: The Milk Carton Kids

The Milk Carton Kids: July 26, 2013 @ Fort Adams State Park, Newport, RI

I survived three days of music at the Newport Folk Festival.  Yay me!  There is always a ton of music to check out, discover and enjoy.  

This year, I found myself giddy over The Milk Carton Kids who opened the Quad Stage on Day 1.  The first description out of my mouth was "they're adorable!" and they are in every way.  

It seemed, everywhere I turned, I saw one or both of them walking around and or watching another artist perform.  

'The Kids', Joey Ryan and Kenneth Pattengale, are old school, while still remaining modern.  They wear suits, they have excellent comedic timing, they're charming and they have insane harmonies.  If you weren't at the festival, or want to re-live it (or if you're like me, missed some of the set when I had to dash to another stage to grab photos), the good folks at NPR are streaming the set HERE.  It was an extremely enjoyable and highly entertaining set.

I made an effort to live Tweet except I mainly did Instagram!  This is my InstaQNYC of The Milk Carton Kids in the tunnel behind the main stage during Feist's set.
