In an interview with Liane Hansen, All Songs Considered host Bob Boilen gives highlights from yesterday at the Newport Folk Festival, including political songs by Billy Bragg, a police-escorted, last minute-arrival by Gillian Welch, a young band that was on the festival's recycling crew last year, The Low Anthem, this time packing the Waterside stage, and the whole festival crowd on its feet at sundown for Pete Seeger's singalong.
