Newport Live was previously known as Common Fence Music, originally established by Ed Nary in 1993 to make folk music accessible in Portsmouth, RI. Decades 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.
Common Fence Music, a longstanding non-profit arts organization on the East Bay whose mission is to celebrate diverse music traditions by offering access to vibrant performances, has been renamed “NEWPORT LIVE.”
Executive Director Dick Lynn announced the 2022 Summer Season will begin on June 10, with Kyshonaperforming at the Norman Bird Sanctuary.
Dick Lynn stated, “We’re excited to open the summer season with Kyshona, a singer-songwriter who has been lauded by NPR Music, Billboard, and No Depression. Our goal is to make the Greater Newport region a year-round music destination and to present high-quality concerts throughout the year in venues on Aquidneck Island and beyond. Great music feeds the soul and nourishes the mind, and we can all use that right now.”
For the second year in a row, the Norman Bird Sanctuary and NEWPORT LIVE (formerly Common Fence Music) are presenting an Outdoor Summer Concert Series together. The series represents a unique programmatic collaboration between the two nonprofit organizations: bringing music and nature together for four unique evening performances throughout the summer months.
“We are delighted to build on last year’s success and continue this collaboration with NEWPORT LIVE,” said Norman Bird Sanctuary Executive Director, Kaity Ryan. “It is a wonderful way to connect the community with the natural resources we protect. The concerts bring people together for great live music outside at NBS during the summer.”
