For the third year in a row, Paste partnered with our friends at Sennheiser to travel to Newport Folk Festival, capturing 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.
Rayland Baxter first caught our attention with his debut Feathers & Fishhooks, but his most recent EP, ashkeLon, was recorded live in the studio, so when we caught his set at Newport we knew were in for a treat. Check out Baxter’s performance of “Dreamin” live at Newport Folk.
