As you may have gathered from previous posts, I am heavily into folk music. What can I say? I like my banjo and accordion. Anyways, the fact that the footage from the Low Anthem is still being processed happily coincides with the release of the lineup for this year’s Newport Folk Festival! Included:

The Decemberists (about whom you have heard entirely too much–sincerest apologies?)

Gillian Welch (who is featured on the Decemberists’ The King Is Dead album and also in “Lua” on Conor Oberst’s Dark Was The Night, which is below for your listening pleasure)

Tegan and Sara (acoustic) (below is “Alligator”, which is not so much folk-y but come ON check out that awesome music video.)

The PS22 Chorus (They played at the Oscars.  Love. Them.)

Emmylou Harris (Legend.)

Amos Lee (below is “Windows Are Rolled Down”–super soulful.)

M. Ward (“Rave On” featuring Zooey Deschanel (!))

Elvis Costello (Acoustic.  WHAAAAT.)

Brown Bird (who performed at the Low Anthem show at the Pasta Sauce Factory. Definitely more of them eventually.)

To name a few. Basically, it’s going to be amazing. That’s all for this Wednesday! If iPhone Dan gets his act together, I may just have a Low Anthem post soon!

Happy Wednesday Night,
