Pushing the Boundaries: Live from the Newport Folk Festival 2008
In this two-hour special, NPR Music took listeners to the historic Newport Folk Festival, which this year left behind traditional folk music in favor of performances by some of today's best-known folk-rock, alt-country, and even reggae artists. Each performed acoustic sets over the course of two days at Fort Adams State Park in Newport, Rhode Island. All Songs Considered host Bob Boilen and WFUV host Rita Houston had the highlights in a broadcast from the festival grounds. An NPR Music co-production with WFUV.
