    Default Roger Waters - Newport Folk Festival - New Song!

    I'm not sure what the policy is with posting Youtube links, but a user name cstoltze got a nice sounding video of a new song Roger premiered last night at the Newport Folk Festival.

    Interesting set Roger did... The setlist (as reported on Rolling Stone):

    - Crystal Clear Brooks (Roger plays piano on this new song, claiming it's the first time he's ever done so)
    - Mother
    - The Bravery of Being Out of Range (first time live since 2002)
    - Hello in There (John Prine cover)
    - Wish You Were Here (with Sara Watkins) (first time live since 2009)
    - Wide River to Cross (Buddy Miller cover) (with Amy Helm)
    - Amused to Death (first time live since 2002)
    - Brain Damage (first time live since 2008)
    - Eclipse (first time live since 2008)
    - Forever Young (Bob Dylan cover) (with Sara Watkins and Amy Helm)

    Note: with My Morning Jacket as backing band, GE Smith on guitar, and Lucius providing backing vocals

    I really enjoyed the new song. Kind of standard Roger chord progressions and structure, but GE does a blazing solo and the lyrical sentiment is quite nice. Very Final Cut-ish.

    I only see a couple of songs captured on Youtube. I don't suppose anyone got the whole set recorded?

    Thanks pinktree. Nice song by RW but a bit too 'familiar', as is with a lot of his material ovet the years. Still, great to see new stuff!

    I really enjoyed watching and listening to this show on YouTube. I think I am a roger fan again. The music is excellent and not the usual note for note thing we are used to.

    I read that NPR might broadcast it this week.
