Of all the artists appearing at Newport Folk, the one who is likely to engender the strongest opinion amongst your concert-going friends, is Amanda Palmer. Some people idolize her, some people have vilified her, and many, many folks have done both without really listening to her.
We're looking forward to seeing and hearing her for the first time.
And even if you're not a fan, watch her TED Talk below, for a well-illustrated, valuable lesson.
Amanda Palmer comes to Newport Folk 2013, and mvyradio will be there again, participating in NPR Music's coverage. Hear performances live from the stage on mvyradio, July 26th through 28th. And watch this space for more NFF artist previews.
