Newport Folk Festival - She & Him

August 11th, 2008

Episode 89 of 426 episodes

Technical difficulties didn't deter M. Ward and Zooey Deschanel from plugging on ahead, even if that meant plugging in an electric guitar instead of an acoustic guitar. And then Newport's infamous rain came down hard. But that didn't stop them, either, nor did it prevent special guest appearances by Jim James and Becky Stark. Originally recorded from the Newport Folk Festival in Newport, R.I. on August 2, 2008.
