Remember when Apple – back before i-Pod was sucking wind? And they brought back Steve Jobs to save the day?Well,what’s happening at Newport these days? Same thing?
With the revered Newport Festivals (Jazz and Folk) struggling. the original entrepreneur of the Festivals, George Wein, may be coming back. Now 83 years old, these festivals are still his babies. Whether he can “save” the Newport Festivals like Jobs saved Apple is questionable. Nice if he could though. These festivals have a special place in American music history.
