NPR and two of the network’s member stations will webcast and broadcast four days of performances from Festival Network’s Newport Folk Festival as well as the JVC Jazz Festival Newport in August.
It is a media partner for both festivals and is working with WBGO(FM) in Newark, N.J., and WFUV(FM) in New York.
The concerts will be streamed live and free, and archived for on-demand listening at NPR Music. Select concerts also will be podcast.
NPR Music, WBGO and WFUV also will produce radio specials highlighting performances and interviews to air on member stations; NPR also will host a live Web chat.
