Live from Newport Folk 2013: The Lone Bellow
For the third year in a row, Paste partnered with our friends at Sennheiser to travel to Newport Folk Festival and capture unplugged performances from a variety of festival artists in a setting where fans could come be a part of the session. Even though there was music all around us, fans who showed up for the sessions were able to hear the performances clearly thanks to Sennheiser, whose wireless headphones made an appearance once again and allowed viewers to hear each song as if they were just inches away from the performance.
Newport Folk Festival wasn’t exactly the first time (or the second or even the third) that Brooklyn band The Lone Bellow captured our attention with their glittering, harmony-driven folk music. But, as with most sets at the historic festival, it seemed here that the atmosphere at the Paste Ruins was uniquely conducive to the sing-a-long style performance that the band gave for an emphatic crowd of fans. Watch The Lone Bellow perform “Teach Me to Know” live at Newport Folk Festival in the player below. The band will embark on a headlining tour this fall, and you can take a peek at the tour dates here.
