Playlist – Best of the Fests: Forecastle and Newport Folk Fest 2014

So we are high into music festival season – my favorite time of year!  Unfortunately, I will not be making it to two of the best ones:  Forecastle Festival and Newport Folk Festival.  This weekend Forecastle Festival kicks off in my mother country, Louisville, Kentucky and Newport rolls it out at Fort Adams State Park in Rhode Island next weekend.

Not quite like being there, but here are 66 songs to introduce you to some of my favorites and some new discoveries.

Happy Festival-ing!
