A.A. Bondy: Newport Folk Festival 2010

August 1st, 2010

Episode 252 of 426 episodes

Fortunately, Bondy's gentle voice and low-key arrangements help him cut through the bleakness with considerable warmth and pop appeal. Expect him to showcase songs from last year's 'When the Devil's Loose at the Newport Folk Festival in Newport, R.I.
