There’s nothing tougher than the Monday morning following the Newport Folk Festival.

Waking up, shaking off the cobwebs, and trundling into the florescent lights of your office on a Monday is always a bummer, but it’s even harder after you’ve been in paradise all weekend.
This year’s Folk Fest was unlike any other in terms of the musical diversity, but had the same incredible welcoming feel that I’ve come to expect and look forward to. The Folk Fest definitely stepped outside their boundaries and took some risks (Jack White, Reignwolf, and Lucius just for starters) and it sure paid off. The organizers hit that sweet spot; managing to expand while staying true to their roots and honoring tradition. 
No other festival manages to feel as inclusive, welcoming, and well-organized as this one. Nowhere else will you find the number of babies-in-headphones to the 70+ crowed equally represented. No other festival organizer cares as much about their fans and artists as this festival. 
I want to thank the Folk Fest for continuing to include me as part of their family, as well as Patagonia and Topo Designs for keeping me and my gear warm and dry. I can’t wait for next year.
