“I stumbled upon Hey Marseilles by accident one afternoon in 2010 when I was yearning for inspiration for an upcoming adventure. A minute into To Travels and Trunks, it was love at first listen.
Their warm, orchestral sound creates the kind of experience music lovers yearn for. It makes you feel something. It reminds you of your brightest moments. The atmospheric folky melodies wrap you up and take you home. Their music can carry you through grand journeys and at the same time be just what you need on a quiet Saturday afternoon.
Clearly, they’re perfect for Newport. At it’s heart, the festival is about feeling great music. Really feeling it, falling in love with new bands, and becoming a part of the spirit of Newport through every note, every hand clap, every harmony.
Hey Marseilles makes you do just that, they have a way of making you feel like there’s no place else you’d rather be, no matter where you are. Luckily one of the places will be Newport Folk and I have the honor and privilege of welcoming them to the 2013 lineup.”
