So the Newport Folk Festival may not hew as closely to its titular heritage as it did in its early years, but nobody can deny that last weekend’s lineup was inspired. Modern Americana and roots heavyweights including Angel Olsen, Jim James, Big Thief and Wilco crossed paths with icons like John Prine, constituting one of the more dynamic music events this year. Paste’s own Brad Wagner ventured to Fort Adams State Park, camera in tow, to bring you the gallery above. Check back this weekend when we set our sights on Lollapalooza.
