My Morning Jacket headlined the famed Newport Folk Festival last night, and there was no shortage of special guests. Alabama Shakes singer Brittany Howard sang vocals on a cover of The Band’s “It Makes No Difference”, and Jim James’ Monsters of Folk collaborator Conor Oberst appeared with Ben Sollee for “Smokin From Shootin'”. Sollee and Laura Veirs also sat in for “Wonderful (The Way I Feel)”.
Watch a replay of the entire performance below, plus see the full setlist (via Live Music Blog). And stay tuned for our own coverage of Newport 2012, which will be posted early this week.
