You gotta love the dudes and dudettes at NPR. Below is a link to download 24 free tracks from artists such as Fleet Foxes, DJ Justice, a rockin band called Deer Tick, Pete Seeger, Joan Baez, Iron & Wine, and the Avett Brothers. Did I mention FLEET FOXES?! The song, Mykanos, is one of my favorite songs, btw. The link to Itunes is here for the Newport Folk Festival 2009 CD Sampler.
For the Jazz dogs in the house, check out the Jazz @ Newport Sampler. Since I’m not a Jazzhead, I have no idea who’s who. But you better believe that I’m getting it cause it certainly has the right price! The link to Jazz At Newport 2009 is here. This won’t last, so download it ASAP! Here’s the legal mumbo-jumbo.
