Watch My Morning Jacket Join Roger Waters At Newport Folk Festival

Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters headlined the Newport Folk Festival last night, performing live for the first time since 2013. Newport regulars My Morning Jacket performed a surprise set earlier in the day, and they showed up to serve as Waters’ backing band. Waters opened with the live debut of a new song, “Crystal Clear Brooks,” and his acoustic set also included a number of Pink Floyd classics and a few covers — including a Bob Dylan tribute, 50 years after Dylan’s legendary electric set at Newport. Singer Amy Helm (the daughter of the late Levon Helm), Lucius, fiddler Sara Watkins, and guitarist G.E. Smith also joined the performance, and you can watch some fan-shot clips of the collaboration below.
