New Orleans has been well represented in recent years at Newport Folk, with appearances from Preservation Hall Jazz Band.
This year, the torch-carriers are Trombone Shorty And Orleans Avenue, who'll add a heavy dose of funk, horns and showmanship to the Folk Festival.
Trombone Shorty 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.
