Here's a link to the Newport, RI, Folk Festival 2011 line-up.

This year the Saturday and Sunday afternoon concerts will be on July 30 and 31, a little earlier than usual. The Friday night, July 29, concert line-up has yet to be announced. Warning: parking prices at Fort Adams State Park are outrageous. I think the state is trying to balance the budget with the parking fees! And if you have to cross the Newport Bridge, the toll is $4 each way. If you are coming from the north, you should get directions that take you into Fall River, MA, and down through Tiverton, Portsmouth, and Middletown, RI, on Rt. 24 South to avoid the bridge. If you are coming from the south, you will have to go far out of your way to avoid it.
