This year's Newport Folk Festival includes artists not necessarily associated with 'folk' music. But with artists reportedly playing songs and in style they normally wouldn't think to play, the festival looks to be a weekend full of great music moments. Host Bob Boilen speaks with Jay Sweet, editor-at-large for Paste Magazine and Associate Producer of the Newport Folk Festival. NPR will webcast concerts throughout the weekend.
