NEWPORT FOLK FESTIVAL: WHY SUFJAN STEVENS SHOULD HAVE HEADLINED DAY 2

NEWPORT, RHODE ISLAND - JULY 25: The second day of the 2015 edition of Newport Folk Festival is capped with rousing headling performances by The Decemberists and Brandi Carlile, with a surprise set from New England hero and folk legend James Taylor. Other acts performing include Sufjan Stevens, Jose Gonzalez, Sturgill Simpson, Jason Isbell, Courtney Barnett, Tommy Stinson, Nikki Lane, Langhorne Slim, and more. Shot at Fort Adams State Park on Saturday, July 25, 2015.

Statistically speaking, the folk troubadour shouldn’t have been beaten out by The Decemberists — but this is music, not math.
