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.

Milk Carton Kids was a band that caught the attention of the Paste staff immediately when they took the festival stage, their quiet harmonies having no trouble reaching an enormous crowd of eager, attentive listeners. By the time the duo appeared at the Paste Ruins, word must have spread even to those who missed the affecting performance on the festival stage that this wasn’t a performance to miss. Check out The Milk Carton Kids’ performance of “Hope of a Lifetime” in the player below.
