Newport Folk Festival Day One

keith and i packed up the wagon with bikes, swimsuits and two days of picnic lunches. we were so excited to head off to Newport Rhode Island for this summer's annual Folk Festival. we had so much fun last year we decided to attend both days of the festival this year and o'boy am i glad we did. the weekend line-up was packed with so many great bands. the weekend before we took the time to plan how we were going to see all our favorites since bands playing on three stages throughout the day. i think we did a good job selecting. i included links to the npr free live pod casts of most of the performances we saw :) i recommend checking them all out. ~ beth-ann

packed and ready to go!
Sallie Ford & the Sound Outside (I heart her and their sound)
pretty colors and pretty people 
Gogol Bordello very fun! 
best part about sitting near the Del's cart lots of ice treats
AND they even let me sit under their umbrella. such nice boys :)
hot toes!
keith always makes sure we eat well
Pokey LaFarge and the South City Three rocked
Tegan and Sara <3

best way to beat the festival traffic
my bird industries skirt garter kept my dress in check while riding
dinner and drinks finished off the night for one sleepy girl (yawn)
