Newport Folk Festival Background
Established in 1959 in Newport, Rhode
Island, the Newport Folk Festival was the brainchild of acclaimed festival producer George Wein. The festival became noted
for introducing a score of performers who went on to become major stars, particularly Bob Dylan and Joan Baez.
forward-thinking, the festival harvested a vast range of folk music and continues to push the envelope to this day. In the
1960s, Howlin' Wolf and Johnny Cash graced the stage. The festival was also linked to the 1960s Blues Revival, where artists
who had faded into the sunset since the '40s (i.e. the Delta blues singers) were revived. In the '80s and '90s, the festival
attracted rock, reggae and indie artists to represent the full Americana landscape.
Much of the history of the Newport
Folk Festival has been sustained through a deep well of recordings. There are 15 recorded albums of the festival that represent
1959 through 1990. And, the 1967 film festival, directed by Murray Lerner, preserves the 1963-1965 festivals.
