Newport Folk Festival: Day 2

by Sarah Wardrop

Day 2 at Newport ended with the song "I'm Amazed", and that's also my reaction to the amount of rain that fell to end the day (although I definitely used different words at the time). Lightning and a serious downpour caused the closing My Morning Jacket set to be cut short, but I have to say, lightning may be the perfect lighting for MMJ. I wonder how far Jim James' voice traveled out over the harbor... Hopefully Levon heard his shout out on "It Makes No Difference"!

Patty Griffin - Words and Music - 2007

by WFUV Staff
Acclaimed singer-songwriter Patty Griffin was in debut record territory 10 years ago when she made her first visit to WFUV, but her big voice and equally powerful songs made quite an impact. Tonight we go back to the archives to hear a few tunes from 'Living With Ghosts' performed live, as Patty talks with host Ben Soper.
