Melody Gardot

Melody Gardot is a Grammy-nominated, American singer-songwriter whose newly released fourth album, Currency of Man, debuted at no. 1 on the U.S., Canadian, and Australian jazz charts. With its funky bass rhythms, retro-soul brass arrangements, euphoric gospel singers, and esoteric orchestrations, the songs on Currency of Man transport us back to the late '60s and early '70s. The music reminds her listeners that, while often compared to such musical icons as Nina Simone, Judy Garland, Miles Davis, Edith Piaf, and Astrud Gilberto, Gardot is a unique talent with a beautiful voice and a well-earned reputation as one of the great live performers touring today.

He was on the road with Buddy Rich as musical director and soloist, and has performed with Joe Williams, Dizzy Gillespie, Mel Torme, Frank Sinatra, and Ella Fitzgerald, among others.

Berklee Gospel and Roots Choir

The Newport Folk Festival understands the value of a good palate cleanser—not to mention the way folk's and gospel's roots intertwine—so this year's lineup taps the rich vein of talent at Berklee College of Music to bring fans the Berklee Gospel and Roots Choir. The ensemble is led by Nedelka Prescod, an assistant professor in the Ensemble Department since 2013. Berklee has gospel choirs but not a group quite like this, with the melding of gospel, roots, and blues plus jazz improvisation.

Watch the Berklee Gospel and Roots Choir perform:

Grey Season is a five-piece folk rock band based out of Boston. The members met in 2011 and began crafting their music by busking on the streets of Boston and Cambridge, learning how to please and cultivate an audience in the process. Their debut EP, Troilus, was released in May 2013, and since then they have performed at a variety of venues throughout the Northeast, from radio stations, basements, pop-up markets, and conventions to galleries, bars, colleges, and concert venues. They have appeared as a spotlight artist at one of the secret shows organized by the Boston branch of Sofar Sounds, an organization that showcases emerging independent artists from around the world. 
 
In January 2014 after a successfully funded Kickstarter campaign, Grey Season recorded their first full-length LP with Grammy-winning engineer Justin Guip and Boston Music Awards producer of the year Benny Grotto in Levon Helm Studios. Released in April 2014, the album exemplifies their constantly evolving sound and has already been garnering attention among their expanding local listenership. Time Will Tell You Well has received critical and popular acclaim in the Boston community, and the band has been playing across the Northeast in support of its release.
Admission: 
$29 in advance / $35 day of show
