Live from Newport Folk: First Aid Kit

Music  |  Video

In partnership with Sennheiser, we’re offering another exclusive video session from the Paste Ruins at the Newport Folk Festival. For this session, Swedish folk twosome First Aid Kit set up in Fort Adams and performed “Emmylou,” a song they describe as a tribute to some of their favorites.

Accompanied by a single guitar, this stripped-down version of the tune maintains its depth thanks to the duo’s powerful harmonies. The song also appears on their sophomore album The Lion’s Roar, released in January of this year.

The band is also set to kick off a tour on Sept. 24 at the Metro in Chicago. They recently released a session through iTunes, which you can check out here.
