Curtis Harding, Live In Concert: Newport Folk 2018

Curtis Harding at the Trans Musicales music festival in 2014.

At the start of Day 2 at this year's Newport Folk Festival, Curtis Harding lit up the Fort stage with what he calls "slop 'n' soul," a soul-rock hybrid that woke up the crowd. Based in Atlanta, Harding has deep experience as a singer, songwriter and guitarist who uses the conventions of soul to look forward, not back. His powerful set included tracks from his two albums: the great Face Your Fear (one of NPR Music's 10 Best R&B Albums of 2017) and Soul Power, his 2014 debut.

SET LIST:

  • "The Drive"
  • "Go As You Are"
  • "Next Time"
  • "Drive My Car"
  • "On and On"
  • "Till the End"
  • "Ghost of You"
  • "Freedom"
  • "Keep On Shining"
  • "Need Your Love"
