Newport Folk Festival

The Newport Folk Festival introduced its audiences to roots music from around the world, resurrected interest in the dying art of Cajun music and – on its New Folks stage - introduced the world to James Taylor, Arlo Guthrie, Van Morrison and Joni Mitchell.

Newport Folk Festival is a mini documentary that celebrates over 50 years of musical excellence, explores the rich social activism of the times and honors the deep and lasting impact of the Newport Folk Festival.
