Newport Folk Backstage Benefit

Great news from our favorite Folk Festival, they are putting together a Backstage Benefit party backstage at Fort Adams State Park in Newport. The thought of hanging backstage for a bbq and jam session with NFF artists is a big deal and I’m super excited about this. So Check out the details below, and head over to and buy your tickets.

Hey Folk Fans! Here’s your chance to become founding members of Newport Festivals Foundation! An annual membership includes an invitation to the First Annual Newport Folk Friends & Family Backstage Benefit on Saturday, July 30th from 7:30 – 10:30 PM.

The party starts backstage at Fort Adams State Park where you’ll join festival artists for a BBQ including beverages, cocktails, and Magic Hat.* Dinner will be followed by an intimate backstage jam featuring several Newport Folk Festival artists and surprise guests.

In addition, you’ll receive a limited edition commemorative poster and laminate as well as enrollment in the Early Bird Club which means you’ll receive the 2012 Newport Folk Early Bird ticket offer and line-up announcement before anyone else next spring.

And the best part is, a big portion of your donation is tax deductible and net proceeds will go to support the mission of the Newport Festivals Foundation – to maintain the Newport Folk & Jazz Festivals into perpetuity and to foster music education in New England.
