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.
Justin Townes Earle stopped by The Ruins after all of the other stages had already wound down for the day, and it was evident by the crowd that gathered as well as the performance that he gave that his southern-tinged vocals and simple instrumentation were worth the wait. Watch Justin Townes Earles perform “Ain’t Waitin’” live at the Paste Ruins at Newport Folk Festival.
