My Morning Jacket’s Entire 2012 Newport Folk Festival Set Streaming
If you didn’t make it to Newport, R.I. over the weekend to catch My Morning Jacket‘s headlining set on Saturday at the annual Newport Folk Festival — or tune into NPR.com to watch the live stream — don’t worry, you’re still in luck. Pro-shot footage of the band’s entire set is currently featured over on YouTube, and we’re going to go ahead and just say it: It’s a steller show.
It was also a star-studded one, with Bright Eyes’ Conor Oberst, Alabama Shakes’ Brittany Howard, Laura Veir and Ben Sollee among the special guests joining MMJ’s Jim James and his awesome, all-white suit at the microphone. Howard’s vocals on their cover of the Band’s ‘It Makes No Difference’ at the 48-minute mark may have stolen the sh0w.
