“Lord Huron’s music is somehow able to combine the desert aesthetic of the American West, with the wide-open forever feeling of standing on the shores of Michigan’s Great Lakes. Their blend of timeless lyrical craft and infectious melodies place them among the more interesting independent artists working today. And if you’ve spent any time in the wilderness of northern Michigan, you know exactly what this music is trying to convey to the world: that there are still wide-open spaces to be explored, full of genuine experiences and sincerity, and that we should take comfort in that.
Newport Folk is an event to showcase the most interesting music happening today. Over the past four or five years, I’ve discovered some of my favorite music by paying attention to what happens at Newport each summer. Lord Huron is a perfect addition to the Newport family, and we should all be excited to welcome them to the line-up.”
