The Low Anthem

The Low Anthem, featured in FLYP’s special music issue, recently played a remarkable set at the 50th annual Newport Folk Festival—sharing billing with artists as folksy as Pete Seeger and Joan Baez and bands as ‘indie’ as The Decemberists and Fleet Foxes. The trio pulled out literally dozens of different instruments for their one hour set, most of which drew from their recent Nonesuch Records debut, Oh My God, Charlie Darwin.

Listen to The Low Anthem’s Newport Folk Festival set here via NPR.

The band is currently touring Europe and are set to embark on a U.S. tour next month.
