2022 Summer Outdoor Concert Series

Celebrating diverse music traditions
through vibrant performances.

Inspired by the Newport Festivals of the 1960’s and 70’s, Newport Live was previously known as Common Fence Music, originally established by Ed Nary in 1993 to make folk music accessible in Portsmouth, RI. Twenty-nine years later, our concert series has evolved to providing diverse music across Newport County, continuing to attract audiences from all over New England to performances featuring GRAMMY award-winning songwriters and musicians, and other highly acclaimed music artists from across the globe.
