The Milk Carton Kids, Mavis Staples, J Roddy Walston & More Set To Play Newport Folk Festival

The Newport Folk Festival, which takes place July 25 - 27, 2014 at Fort Adams State Park in Newport, RI, announced yesterday that The Milk Carton Kids will be returning to the festival this summer.  They were one of the highlights of the festival for me last year.  Their set is on Saturday, July 26.

The festival is mostly sold out.  Tickets still remain for the Friday show. You should probably hurry if you want tickets for that day as those are sure to sell out soon as well.

The Newport Folk Festival has been rolling out their line-up via social media since the beginning of February.  See below for a list of who has been announced so far.

Update: The festival announced this morning, 3/14, that Dawes and Conor Oberst (w/Dawes as his supporting band) will be returning to the Fort.
