Coming our way this weekend is the Newport Folk Festival, which brings people back year after year.  It has been around since 1959 and the founder, George Wein, brought acts like Joan Baez and Bob Dylan to Newport.  This festival takes place at Fort Adams State Park and will be from Friday to Sunday.  Some of the great musical talent featured at this festival include: Iron & Wine, Deer Tick, City & Colour, Alabama Shakes, Blind Pilot, First Aid Kit, Conor Oberst, Punch Brothers, Tune-Yards, Sara Watkins, and many, many more.
