George Wein Announces 2013 Dates For Newport Folk And Jazz Festivals

SOURCE: Published:
NEWPORT, RI: George Wein, Chairman of the Newport Festivals Foundation, Inc., is pleased to announce the dates of the 2013 Folk and Jazz festivals in Newport, RI. The 2013 Newport Folk Festival® will be held July 27-28 and the Newport Jazz Festival® presented by Natixis Global Asset Management is set for August 2-4. Additional information will be announced in the coming months.

“Following this year’s Folk Festival that sold out three months in advance and one of the best Jazz Festivals ever, we want to make sure that music fans have the 2013 dates now. More than 40, 000 people attended the two festivals, many from throughout the area and from around the world. Music lovers are already looking toward next year’s concerts and it is helpful to give them the opportunity to schedule travel and lodging plans as early as possible," said Wein, who has produced the Jazz and Folk festivals since their inceptions in 1954 and 1959, respectively.
