Newport Folk Festival
It started raining - hard - as soon as we arrived in the parking lot for the Newport Folk Festival. We hustled over to the drinks tent to wait it out, and just as Blizten Trapper was beginning, a (sky*) blue sky started to creep overhead, pushing all the rain clouds away for the rest of the night.
This was my kind of concert setting. I've mentioned before my lack of cool musical tastes, but this extends to old lady-like reactions to live music, as well. It's too loud, too smokey, too teenager-y. Embarrassing.
But Newport Folk Festival is a delightful place! The crowd is truly nice, there are ocean views, and the food is fantastic. I kept my eyes peeled for Bob Boilen, but no such luck spotting him. See you next year, Bob?
