Newport Folk Festival 2013: Day One In Photos

Originally published on Sun August 4, 2013 9:04 am

It always rains at least one day at the Newport Folk Festival, and because Newport started a whole day earlier this year, we got the downpour out of the way first. But that didn't stop folks from dancing and singing along to The Mountain Goats, JD McPherson, Blake Mills and many more. The sun finally came out at the very end for Old Crow Medicine Show's closing hootenanny, hopefully a good omen for sunshine. See a gallery of Adam Kissick's photos here and follow us on Flickr for much, much more.
