Download Folk Festival 50 Performances at NPR Music
This weekend, NPR Music recorded George Wein’s Folk Festival 50 from Newport, R.I. (or, as we still affectionately call it, the Newport Folk Festival). We’ve archived over 30 sets from the artists on all three stages for streaming and download, including Pete Seeger and Joan Baez, as well as The Decemberists and The Avett Brothers. Also see photos and hear NPR radio pieces about the history of the festival.
30 shows not enough for you? You can also download a free 12-song sampler of music from the aritsts who performed at the festival.
