Norah Heads For Newport, Twice
Norah Jones has announced that she will be completing an unusual double by performing at both the Newport Folk Festival and then the Newport Jazz Festival on consecutive weekends in July.
The multi-million-selling, nine-time Grammy winner will be making her solo debut at both famous events. The versatile Jones will play the Folk Festival on Saturday, 23 July, two years after performing there with her band Puss n Boots and as the special guest of the great Mavis Staples. Seven days later, on 30 July, Norah will appear at the Jazz Festival for the very first time.
Jones’ most recent solo album was 2012’s Little Broken Hearts. But since then she has released 2013’s Everly Brothers tribute set Foreverly, with Billy Joe Armstrong of Green Day and 2014’s Puss n Boots album No Fools, No Fun.
Norah also appears on the album and DVD of the George Harrison tribute concert, George Fest: A Night to Celebrate the Music of George Harrison. She performs the late Beatle‘s ‘Something’ and ‘Behind The Locked Door’ in her own right, and appears on ‘All Things Must Pass’ with Ann Wilson of Heart, Karen Elson and George’s son Dhani.
