A couple of the photos I took at the Newport Folk Festival.  It was a definitely a highlight of my recent trip to the States.  Tegan and Sara were awesome live, as were the Decemberists.  It’s such a unique festival with incredible music and takes place in an absolutely beautiful setting.  What’s more, the food’s great and the whole atmosphere is really relaxed - very different from most of the UK festivals.  Another striking thing was the age range of the people attending: dedicated folk fans who’ve probably been going there since the ’50s standing next to teenagers and families with small children - all united by music.
