The 1960 Newport Folk & Blues Festival

The Newport Folk & Blues Festival was were anybody who was anybody in Folk or Blues would go to sing to there hearts content. They would be surrounded by people who felt what they were playing or singing. It was actually more of a exclusive club then a rally, but none the less great music minds would come in and out of this festival with there music and share with there friends how they felt. Now 44 years later we have CD's from each year the Newport Folk & Blues Festival went on.
