Since its inaugural year way back in 1959, Newport Folk Festival has grown into one of the world’s most venerable music events. Recent years have seen the festival producers challenging the modern definition of folk with eclectic lineups that have put Newport at the top of many fans’ must-see lists. The festival launched Newport Folk Radio in 2015 as a year-round station on TuneIn, curated with music by festival artists past, present, and future — and to get you ready for the 2019 iteration, Consequence of Sound is proudly presenting an exclusive Power Hour on Newport Folk Radio sponsored by Bose.
