RNR News and Notes

 

 

The annual Newport Folk Festival is known for surprise guest appearances and one-off collaborations (remember last year when Mumford and Sons showed up and covered Radiohead?)

 

Well - this year's fest had a pretty epic headliner for Saturday night (7/27) 

 

The act, billed as  “????: THE COLLABORATION" , wound up being a collaborative set featuring many of the weekend’s female performers, including Brandi Carlile, Sheryl Crow, Lucy Dacus, Jade Bird, country super group The Highwomen, Linda Perry, Judy Collins, Yola… and Dolly Parton.  

 

Dolly performed “Jolene” and “9 to 5,” and duet with Brandi on “I Will Always Love You”  !!! 

 

See out pictures, video, and tweets from the performance (including a tweet from Dolly herself) below.
