Hi Everyone!


Welcome to the August issue of lemonade!

This month is all about music on Aquidneck Island. Without even crossing a bridge you can see and hear world class, rock, blues, folk, reggae, jazz and much more. So let's get right to the details in an extended All Ears section below. 


2011 All Star Award Let there music to fill the air!






Have you "sipped lemonade on facebook" yet? 
it's always open for your posts, so please do!

Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks

all ears

The Newport Jazz Festival's headliners will be eclectic and electric this year.  Dr. John and the Lower 911 on  8/3, Pat Metheny's Unity Band on 8/4 and the Tedeschi Trucks Band on 8/5. Based on the music line-up planned, we may as well camp at the Newport Yachting Center this month (jk)!  The Sunset Music Series hosts Lyle Lovett on 8/3, The Cowboy Junkies & The Pousette-Dart Band on 8/4, and k.d.lang on 8/17. On 8/10, it's Classic Rock Rewind** with Johnny Winter, Edgar Winter, Leslie West (Mountain), Rick Derringer and Kim Simmonds (Savoy Brown).

Taj Mahal The first Newport Blues & BBQ Festival will be held on 8/18 starring Marcia Ball, Taj Mahal, Shemekia Copeland, Joanne Shaw Taylor and John Lee Hooker, Jr. This event also features a pig roast, gates open at 12N-- wahoo!


Eileen Ivers Finally, on 8/25 it's the Celtic Rock Festival with Gaelic Storm, Eileen Ivers, The Town Pants, The Screaming Orphans and Tartan Terrors-- be afraid, very afraid ;-) Finally, as mentioned last month, The Newport Bridge Festival continues through 8/2.


p.s. Here's a link I stumbled upon and enjoyed recently... the Wall of Guitarists, a gallery of  97 guitar greats. Just click on any photo and you'll hear a solo- fun!
