Newport Folk Festival will host a performance of Alone & Together, the project that pits Kevin Morby, Sam Cohen, Eric Johnson and Josh Kaufman with drummer Joe Russo. The band will play on Friday at the sold out festival along with headliners Fleet Foxes, The Head and the Heart, Seratones and more.
The band recently played a set at Sweetwater Music Hall with special guest Bob Weir, as the guitarist joined the band for a few songs including cuts from his solo album Blue Mountain, which Kaufman and Johnson both worked on. Weir has also previously worked with Joe Russo in Furthur.
Newport Folk Festival, slated for July 28-30 in Newport, RI, is sold out.
