Folk Yeah! Weekend #1 At Newport Fest.

August 3, 2011 8:24 am / by / 1 comment

This weekend I went with NPR Music to Newport, Rhode Island to help manage photos and video for live-stream coverage of the Newport Folk Fest. The talented Shantel Mitchell did most of the still shooting, but I grabbed my camera occasionally and wandered out to snap a few.

The weather was fantastic, I ate strawberry shortcake, almost broke my toes, and spent the weekend with some wonderful people. Mike Katzif and I also did a little rogue video shoot with Mountain Man and David Wax Museum, but more on that later. And there were boats ‘n shit! Next week: Jazzzzzz.
