Newport Folk Revival Announced: Courtney Barnett & Friends in Downtown LA on Valentine’s Day

Courtney Barnett is playing the Wilco Sky Blue Sky Festival this weekend in Mexico, then comes over to the U.S. for a set of shows doing a “solo” thing and even supporting Brandi Carlile at The Ryman for two sold-out shows.

Closing out the run on Valentine’s Day, Barnett will be teaming up with the legendary Newport Folk Festival team for a special night of surprise collaborations at the historic Palace Theatre in Downtown LA. They’re dubbing it a Newport Folk Revival to raise money for music education in underserved communities, so the evening will directly benefit the needs of the greater Los Angeles area. Barnett will be joined by a hand picked all-star backing band along with special guests that have Newport Folk friends, so no doubt it’ll be a killer lineup.

Barnett will be bringing Melbourne-via-Germany musician Hachiku on the road with her as support. Hachiku (Anika Ostendorf to her friends) releases music through the label Barnett founded, Milk! Records.
