纽波特民间艺术节

2008-06-06 09:00

August 3 to August 5 (Newport, Rhode Island, the US)

  Since the inaugural(创立之初的, 首次的) 1958 festival, the Newport Folk Festival is renowned for presenting the very best in traditional and up-and-coming (日渐重要的) folk artists. And, of course, the stunning (出色的, 漂亮的) setting near picturesque Narragansett Bay (美国纳拉甘西特海湾) doesn't hurt in making this one of our favorite folk festivals.

  This year's Newport Folk Festival's lineup (阵容,节目) features legendary figures(传奇人物) in songwriting, new voices from both hemispheres and dynamic (有活力的) bands who will bring the crowd to their feet (吸引公众前来). Many musicians such as bluegrass master Sam Bush, acoustic blues player John Mooney and Joan Osborne are among the artists in the festival program which begins Friday, August 3 and continues through Sunday, August 5.

  If you're wondering how to sustain yourself (维持体力,支持住自己) during a full day of great folk music, here's just a sampling of what you'll discover in the festival food tents and crafts market.

  Pick Pockets Deli is one of the longest-standing(固定的, 长期存在的) food vendors, which is known for their homemade pita breads (家制皮塔饼面包) and fresh Middle eastern selections. Their falafel(沙拉三明治), hummus(鹰嘴豆沙) and tahina pockets(袋装芝麻酱) make perfect festival fare. What would summer in Rhode Island be without great seafood (海鲜)? Cove Grill of Jamestown, Rhode Island brings the taste of the bay to Fort Adams. This year the "seafood hut" will feature a menu consisting of fresh lobster rolls, stuffies, and french fries.

  As you enter the festival grounds, you can't miss the colorful crafts market that has been part of this festival for the past 16 years. Some 50 artisans and folk related exhibitors are featured each year. You'll find clothing, jewelry, pottery, stained glass, woodwork, leatherwork, musical instruments, and many other surprises. While shopping the crafts market, be sure to check out the nearby festival merchandise booth featuring official festival T-shirts, tank tops(吊带衫), sweats, and hats.
