At 52, Newport festival as relevant as it ever was
Flexible in how it defines ‘folk’
Band mates from the Providence-based indie folk band volunteered to gather recyclables. In between picking up cans and bottles, they did some networking.
“We brought copies of our new record, and every time we recognized someone, we’d hand them a copy,” said band member Jeff Prystowsky. It paid off: A music journalist listened to the record and gave the band one of its first big reviews.
The band has since found success, touring overseas, appearing on the “Late Show with David Letterman” and playing at most of the big U.S. festivals - including Newport. But the folk festival will always remain something special. The band will be back in Newport this weekend.
“It’s like a homecoming for us,” Mr. Prystowsky said. “We intimately know what it feels like to be walking around out there, wanting to be backstage with these musicians.”
