Shakey Graves sat down in Fort Adams to perform “If Not for You” and “Coat of Arms,” building an entire sonic universe with just his acoustic guitar and coarse vocals. The intensity of his delivery and timelessness of his sound melted perfectly into the brick hall where we filmed, leaving our crew and guests in total awe.
On The Boat is a video series made possible by Squarespace featuring intimate performances shot at some of our favorite music festivals. For Newport Folk Fest in Newport, Rhode Island we chartered a boat, set a course for Fort Adams State Park and brought aboard some incredible artists and fans. The weekend was filled with performances by Lucius, Shakey Graves, Thao & the Get Down Stay Down, Hamilton Leithauser, Tall Tall Trees and Death Vessel.
