For the third year in a row, Paste partnered with our friends at Sennheiser to travel to Newport Folk Festival and capture one-of-a-kind live performances in an intimate setting where fans could be a part of the performance. Fans who stopped by the Paste Ruins were able to hear the sessions as they were recorded, and thanks to wireless headphones provided by Sennheiser the sound was as clear as if the audience was right on stage.
We’d already had the luxury of seeing Amanda Palmer perform once this year, when she made a surprise appearance with Billy Bragg at our South By Southwest party, but the opportunity to see her in a more rustic setting at the storied Newport Folk Festival was one not to miss. When Palmer stopped by the Ruins, she charmed the crowd not only with her captivating stage presence but also with her candid lyrics and forceful delivery. Watch Palmer perform “The Truth” live at the Paste Ruins at Newport Folk Festival.
