Comments: Newport Folk Festival 2007

I went to the Newport Folk Festival forty years ago -- 1967. Saw Arlo Guthrie do Alice's Restaurant. It was a hoot.

I'd love to have seen that.

So would I.

Of course I live just across the Bay from Newport, yet am unlikely to attend, mostly because of the hassle it is to get to Fort Adams on days when the Folk Festival isn't there.

Also, since when are the Allman Brothers a folk band?

Gosh, could you imagine Emmylou Harris, Linda Ronstadt and Dolly Parton singing their songs??
Three beautiful voices to fill the summer night!!!!
