Advertised as the "Newport Folk Festival" and featuring only three performers - Nanci Griffith, Rodney Crowell and Guy Clark - this event was a far cry from the memorable spectacle of the same name that took place at the Greek Theater in 1998. Which is not to say the this concert was not good, because it was. I went to the show with my Better Half, we had decent seats.
Rodney Crowell kicked off the proceedings with a set that drew primarily from "The Houston Kid", his well-received then-current album. With songs as good as "I Wish It Would Rain", his set screamed quality.
