Jackson Browne

Take Five with Jackson Browne

by Rita Houston
Neil Swanson

You heard Jackson Browne's first-ever Newport Folk Festival set during FUV's live Newport coverage last month. It was a very full stage, with Dawes, Jonathan Wilson, Sara Watkins and Tom Morello helping out, and it was just as busy backstage throughout the weekend. That's where I caught up with Jackson, and you can listen to our full conversation below.

Newport Folk Festival: Day 3

Sometimes it felt like we were paying as much attention to the weather radar as the music, but in the end, there was sun.

Day 3 at Newport had quite a finale: the skies cleared up, and a mutual admiration society of Dawes, Jonathan Wilson, Tom Morello and Sara Watkins held court on the Fort stage with Jackson Browne as their leader, soaking it all up. "Lawyers, Guns and Money" with a Tom Morello solo... Maybe the first time an electric guitar has been played with teeth at Newport? Probably a tie with "These Days" for my highlight of Jackson's set.
