For the second consecutive year, Sennheiser and Paste teamed up to film and record artists at the Newport Folk Festival. This year, we stepped things up at the Paste Ruins by offering festival attendees a unique chance to listen to these sessions through wireless Sennheiser headphones, creating an intimate experience that brought fans closer to 25 of their favorite acts than anywhere else at the festival.

After he recently released Searching For Sugar Man, the soundtrack for the documentary exploring his legacy, the cult singer/songwriter Rodriguez filmed and recorded several songs inside Fort Adams—a 19th century military fort that hosts the folk festival each year. Watch Rodriguez perform “The Establishment Blues” at the Paste Ruins in the video player below.
