Photo Highlights From the Newport Folk Festival with Dolly Parton, The Highwomen, Kacey Musgraves & More

Rhode Island’s Newport Folk Festival (July 26–28) featured a heavy-hitting lineup of musical A-listers, including the first live performance from The Highwomen (Amanda Shires, Brandi Carlile, Maren Morris, Natalie Hemby), a surprise appearance by Dolly Parton, and billed performances from Kacey Musgraves, Sheryl Crow, Lucas Nelson and more.

Nash Country Daily affiliate WPRO of Providence covered the event and was kind enough to send some photos our way, reporting that the festival “maintains its place as the gold standard of music festivals—impeccably run, a beautiful location, and well-curated sets that had a broad appeal, from relative unknowns to globally known superstars.”

Check out some photos from the event.
