The infamous venue where Dylan went electric in ‘65 and the launch pad for the likes of James Taylor, Arlo Guthrie and Joni Mitchell, the legendary Newport Folk Festival has been introducing audiences to roots music from around the world for over half a century. Blending fascinating archive, dozen’s of live performances and interviews with Joan Baez, Judy Collins, the Indigo Girls, the late Pete Seeger and many others, this lovingly crafted documentary explores the enduring legacy of the granddaddy of all music Festivals.
Drawing together delta blues, sixties electro folk and world rhythms, Hot Feet’s earthy, wistful and sometimes raucous songs may have been penned in Swedish log cabins and recorded on a remote Scottish island, but are rooted in the Cotswolds, where members of the band can be spotted tending to sheep and building dry stone walls. Tipped to follow the success Munford & Sons, Laura Marling and Noah & the Whale, don’t miss this opportunity to see them at their beguiling and beautifully intimate best.
“Truly nothing short of fabulous…really wonderful” Marc Riley, BBC Radio 6Music
