FORDHAM UNIVERSITY Triple A WFUV/NEW YORK will again be broadcasting from the annual NEWPORT FOLK FESTIVAL.
The station will present a live broadcast of the set by RYAN ADAMS, which will wrap up the first day of the festival on FRIDAY, JULY 25th.
The festival continues on SATURDAY, JULY 26th and SUNDAY, JULY 27th, and the station -- in partnership with NPR Music, WMVY/MARTHA’S VINEYARD and Folk Alley – will be archiving performances recorded on the Fort Stage. These sets, hosted by WFUV PD RITA HOUSTON, will include a CONOR OBERST, DAWES, DEER TICK, NICKEL CREEK, AOIFE O’DONOVAN, SHOVELS & ROPE and others.
“Newport still has special status on the festival circuit,” said HOUSTON. “Given the amazing lineup, it’s not surprising that it sold out instantly again this year. We’re delighted that we can share the festival with our listeners in NEW YORK and around the world.”
