I lived in Newport, RI when I was in college and the days of the folk festivals were long past by the time I got there. We still had the annual jazz festival, but the type of gatherings we see in these video clips were long gone – though it looks like it may be back now – this time with donuts! (oh golly, what would these guys say?). Used to drive by the field at Ft. Adams where the classic Newport Folks Festivals were held all those years ago. The most excitement I remember happening when I lived in Newport was the Claus Von Bullo trial. And, of course, graduating.
