Newport Folk is scheduled for the last weekend in July, and organizers have just announced a slate of official aftershows for those who want to keep the festivities rolling into the evening.
Highlights include a special “Steal Your Folk” Grateful Dead tribute by The Cook Brothers (July 26), an 80th birthday celebration by Mavis Staples (July 27) and a collaborative “Let Us Go Into The House” show featuring Hiss Golden Messenger, Mountain Man and Jonathan Wilson (July 27).
