Photos by Boston Concert Photography For a handful of years, I’ve been lucky enough to spend the last weekend in July at The Fort for Newport Folk Festival, partaking in what many call the best weekend of the year. Note: I still don’t say this openly around family, but for some reason I’m comfortable putting it on the internet. I bring that up for good reason. If you spend a long weekend with Newport Folk, it takes a toll on you both physically and emotionally. It’s the best kind of exhaustion—but make no mistake—it is most certainly exhaustion. Once-in-a-lifetime moment…

Sunday at Newport Folk Festival in Photos

Beck [I]t’s hard to believe that the festival was just last weekend. Sunday was a welcome repeat of clear skies and a warm sun shining down on the Fort.

Among the numerous performers were Cold Specks, Andrew Bird, Tift Merritt, The Felice Brothers, Spirit Family Reunion, Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, Joe Fletcher, Michael Kiwanuka, The Lumineers and a grand finale with Beck.

Photos | Spirit Family Reunion + Thick Wild + Spitzer Space Telescope @ The Sinclair

Photos by Boston Concert Photography Bearing witness to Spirit Family Reunion selling out The Sinclair in Harvard Square furthers the current tide that seems to be rolling through many channels today: work for it, live it, and it will happen. Over the past few years, SFR have become well known for working their modestly sized audiences into foot-stomping, hand-clapping, throat-throttling sweats while belting out tunes that are reminiscent of a simpler time in our culture. Attending one of their shows was kind of like being in on a speakeasy. Your friends would tell you you should get to one of…

Exclusive | Spirit Family Reunion to play Newport Folk Fest 2013

[S]pirit Family Reunion delighted fans at the Fort last year with one of the best sets of the festival. They might have even stolen the show. I couldn’t be happier to announce the fact that they’ll be returning to the grounds of Fort Adams once again this year. Spirit Family Reunion is a living, breathing, stomping embodiment of folk music. Their music is dripping with authenticity. Anyone who’s ever witnessed they’re live show will attest that they play each note with every fiber of their being. Their passion travels from their heart straight through to their instruments and you can’t…

2012 | Steve’s Top Albums of the Year

1. Father John Misty – Fear Fun [C]roce, Skynard, Nilsson, Fogerty and Morrison had a baby and named it Father John Misty. Right out of the gate this album rocketed to the top of my most listened to list. Hooked in by “Well You Can Do It Without Me”‘s Nilsson-like flavor and then drawn into the much deeper and more complicated workings of stunners such as “Funtimes in Babylon”, “Only Son of the Ladies Man”, and… fuck it, the whole album is fantastic. 2. The Lumineers – The Lumineers [I]t says a lot about the state of the musical union…
