Newport Folk is one of the festivals I most look forward to every summer. The waterfront location is just breathtaking. I took about a hundred photos of boats, seagulls and sunsets, and of course probably twice that of all the bands and musicians. (I'll let the professional photographers share their pics with you instead of my camera phone pics).

The Milk Carton Kids - Words And Music - 2013

by Alisa Ali

Rarely has so much discord resulted in such harmony. The dueling guitarists in The Milk Carton Kids (Kenneth Pattengale and Joey Ryan) have been together just over two years, but they have the rapport of a lifetime on their latest album, The Ash & Clay. I had trouble getting a word in edgewise when the duo visited Studio A, but outside the conversation, the guys treated us to some great live tunes too.
