In honor of five years since they released their self-titled debut album, supergroup Middle Brother will be joining Newport Folk Festival’s lineup. The group, which was originally meant to be a one-off, consists of members John J. McCauley III of Deer Tick, Taylor Goldsmith of Dawes, and Matt Vasquez of Delta Spirit.
The festival runs from July 22-24 with Middle Brother playing the last day. Other artists on the bill include Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Flight of the Conchords, Norah Jones, Father John Misty (solo) and more.
