A Newport Folk Fest Mini-Doc
In advance of this year’s festival, Ryan Mastro and SO PA Productions have created a mini-documentary about the 2012 Newport Folk Festival. As previously reported, the multi-day event will take place in Newport, RI on July 28 and 29 featuring My Morning Jacket, Conor Oberst, Jackson Browne, Dawes, Deer Tick, Head and the Heart, Punch Brothers, Guthrie Family Reunion, Tallest Man on Earth, Preservation Hall Jazz Band and Alabama Shakes, among others.
Though the festival proper is now sold out, tickets are still available for a pre-event on the site on July 27 featuring Wilco, Blitzen Trapper and Megafaun, among others. Last year marked the first time the historic festival has ever sold out in advance.
