The 56th Newport Folk Festival is in full swing this weekend. Rhode Island Public Radio’s John Bender reports from Fort Adams State Park.
A marching band played as fans waited to enter the Newport Folk Festival. The event sold out well in advance, so thousands turned out before the gates even opened, eager secure a prime spot on the lawn at Fort Adams State Park.
Rhode Island-based band “Haunt The House” opened the festival with a heart-felt performance before a rapt audience, including family members, and local fans.
