For its 60th anniversary, the Newport Folk Festival has not one but two mysterious headlining slots and will welcome a new supergroup and may even have more up its sleeve.
Legendary soul singer Mavis Staples employs decades of work in her potent new release Live in London.
With the inaugural Grandoozy music festival brought to the Mile High City by the co-creators of Bonnaroo and Outside Lands, the expectations — and temperatures — continued to soar. Guess who beat the odds?
Another weekend at the Newport Folk Festival provides some amazing musical memories, especially the Jon Batiste-led star-studded finale.
When Mavis Staples says she's uniquely troubled by the current climate in this country — by the guns and the police violence and the president she blames for reviving old enmities — there's good reason to listen.
