Everyone’s Rockin’, Except For Pokey

Pokey danced so much today, that he pulled a muscle in his hind leg.

Day 48         July 27

Even though it rained for a good part of the day, this final day of the festival, was just as wonderful as the first two days.

The rain brought out a comraderie in the musicians and in the festival attendees that added to the excitement of the day. And it also brought out our rain ponchos for the very first time! Now I was glad that I had bought those things two months ago!

A little rain didn't bother this crowd!

After two full days of music, and now another full day of music, in the rain no less, you’d think I’d be dead tired, and tired of listening to music. But I wasn’t. The quality of musicianship, and the energy from the bands and from the crowds, was just unbelievable, and I never tired of it! And at the end of this day, I was so sad that it was all over.

The end of an amazing three days!

Here are my snapshots, my documentation of the bands I saw, from the final day of the 2014 Newport Folk Festival……
