Music is one of our greatest passions. We particularly love the energy of live performances, whether on a big stage or in an intimate setting, like our Sun Sessions(™) event series. As Kerry often says, “music and kindness make the world go round.” Kerry and Alex have traveled the country visiting music festivals, but this year they went back to the creme de la creme: the Newport Folk Festival.
At Faherty, we believe collaboration fuels creativity and the impromptu, all-star jam sessions at Newport Folk Festival are proof of that, year after year. Kerry and Alex were blown away on the final night when Brandi Carlile invited surprise guest Joni Mitchell on stage to join musicians for a 13-song singalong—the legend’s first live show in 20-plus years.
As a festival partner, Faherty co-hosted an afterparty where Kerry and Alex got to hang with some of their favorite artists, like Joy Oladokun (above). Between sets they explored the rugged coastline, oyster shacks, and galleries in the historic town. Check out their full journey through Newport in our new Fall catalog below.
