David Wax Museum: Folk Among The Ruins

Few groups seem more game for tromping over thorny bushes and climbing through broken window frames — just to play a single song — than David Wax Museum. Complete with a rousing horn section and some spirited handclaps, the band performs a fun and infectious rendition of "Born With a Broken Heart" in the dilapidated ruins of Fort Adams during the 2011 Newport Folk Festival in Newport, R.I.
