Newport Folk & WOMAD festival: audio, video, photos online

Two major music festivals were held last weekend: The Newport Folk Festival and in England, WOMAD.  Some info, audio, video and photos from those events:

Most concerts are archived online on the NPR website. Last night, I enjoyed Ramblin’ Jack Elliott’s performance (with Pete Seeger guesting). One of a kind, and a true treasure. Ramblin’ Jack will be at Hugh’s Room on Sep. 24.

A quote from Seeger at the Festival: “When kids get older, they realize that a lullaby is a propaganda song”

From The Guardian: a review and some photos (Featuring a couple of my favourites: Khaira Arby & Afrocubism)
