It's not often you find a band with three lead singers who each sound as impressive on their own as they do together.
Brandi Carlile's Newport set was a pure celebration, as if she soaked up all that sunshine and love and poured it back over the crowd.
A power trio of an entirely different kind, the Houston band led a journey through globally-influenced funk, jazz, surf and psych-rock — before creating a live, instrumental hip-hop mixtape.
The Nashville-by-way-of-Brooklyn band repeatedly took the Newport audience from joyful, foot-stomping singalongs, to a rapturous hush.
Darlingside's dark songs are full of light, illuminated by voices that come from on high.
The jazz duo opened its set with "Heaven Right Here," one of the early '90s tunes that had Tuck and Patti on the charts and all over jazz radio.
Lucius' fifth appearance at Newport saw the group outdo itself, with choreography, a tribute to Richard Swift and many, many friends.
"If you came to this set looking to be cheered up, you're screwed," White deadpanned from the stage. His music can give goosebumps, even on a sunny summer day; hear his set at Newport now.
The folk-rock singer from Australia's Blue Mountains makes music that confronts all the anxieties a 20-something feels about getting older. Hear songs from her debut album, Don't Let The Kids Win.
The Portland trio, composed of sisters Natalie, Meegan and Allison Closner, makes music that invites its audience to share in its bond of sisterhood. Hear Joseph's set at Newport Folk now.
The band kept up a keen-edged commentary on xenophobia, censorship and racism throughout its set of gritty Southern rock. Hear its set now.
Hear the band play its tender songs about home, friendship and growing up, live at Newport Folk.
The folk-rock singer performed songs from her acclaimed debut album — plus some new tracks — at Newport.
Though he was new to many in the audience, the New Zealander's lonesome set was the one festival goers were talking about for the rest of the weekend. Hear it now.
Hear one of Americana's most influential songwriters perform some of his timeless tunes alongside special guests Margo Price, Roger Waters, Justin Vernon and more.
The rising indie-rock band performed some new, unreleased songs during its Newport set.
The Georgia-born roots musician's songs tell detailed, easy-paced stories of family and close friends. Hear his Newport Folk set, with special guest Jade Bird.
The charismatic husband-and-wife duo returned to Newport after a three-year hiatus.
Mackenzie Howe, Sharon Silva and Kinsey Lee's set at Newport Folk was assured and robust, a testament to potent voices made more powerful when united.
"I'm ready for the world," Alynda Lee Segarra sings in the chorus of the rousing "Hungry Ghost" — and her band's set told that simple truth again and again. In the past seven or eight years, Hurray For The Riff Raff has blossomed slowly but fully, transforming its sound from intense-but-delicate one-woman bedroom recordings to the rip-roaring full-band jams that dominated the group's set at Stubb's BBQ in Austin, Texas. Setlist: 1. Life To Save 2. Nothing's Gonna Change That Girl 3. Hungry Ghost 4. Rican Beach 5. The Navigator 6. Living In The City 7. Fourteen Floors 8. Pa'lante

It's nice to hear Metric, at their peak, during the Fantasies Tour. Easily their best album and unfortunately their later albums can't compare.

was walking past the stage when this band started playing... they stopped me in my tracks. nobody i asked knew who the heck they were, they were mesmerising and so so bittersweet. i was so moved that I went back stage and asked the bassist for a hug.

I can't believe how awesome NPR is. I already listen to them all of the time but this is just a great PodCast. GREAT music, GREAT artists, GREAT podcasts. I am a fan. I'm considering becoming a member of NPR.

WOW!!! What an amazing lineup of talented indie artists!!! Be sure to give a listen to the Andrew Bird and Josh Ritter concerts. Also, I am not particularly fond of bluegrass music but Nickle Creek blew me away!!! I mean I could not believe my ears when listening to the guy on the mandolin tear up a solo at around the 30 minute mark, not to mention the guitar, the fiddle, and the harmony between the female and male vocals.... I think I like bluegrass now!!!

Another stupendous podcast orgy of excess! At first I downloaded the ones I didn't already have from the All Songs Considered podcasts, but it seemed maybe these now are offered in better fidelity than before. Getting them all--greedily--now I will have them all in one place, even if thirteen (by my count) are redundant from what I already had. When I will ever be able to listen to nearly three days' worth of music who knows, but it is nice to have a chance to try to find out. Nor would it be so great if the artists represented weren't all ones someone might care to listen to. Hearing music in a live setting that one has heard on CD is a nice bonus for having bought the CD in the first place. And the unfamiliar artists might be worth a listen to as well for this price of admission. Hugely recommended!
