  • Rhode Island’s annual Newport Folk Festival was a star-studded event this past weekend. The lineup included Wilco, Fleet Foxes, Regina Spektor, Ben Gibbard, Angel Olsen, Margaret Glaspy, Big Thief, and many more. On the final day of the fest John Prine headlined and during his set he brought out a number of people to help him perform some of his beloved songs. Justin Vernon came out to do “Bruise Orange (Chain Of Sorrow)," Roger Waters helped with “Hello In There," Margo Price sang “In Spite Of Ourselves," and Jim James of My Morning Jacket duetted “All The Best." The set ended in a sing-along of "Paradise" with various performers from the fest. [ Stereogum ]
