Sheryl Crow was spotted at Gurney’s Newport over the weekend, while she was in town headlining at the Newport Folk Festival. On Saturday, James Taylor picked up Sheryl and her family by boat from the Gurney’s Newport marina and cruised around the harbor. 

The Folk Festival made national news due to a surprise performance by Dolly Parton, and it boasted the highest number of female acts in its 60-year history with additional performances by Maggie Rogers, Kacey Musgraves, Brandi Carlile, Linda Perry, and more.

On Sunday night, several of the artists including JP Harris and Janet Weiss congregated back at The Pineapple Club at Gurney’s Newport following the Folk Festival for an impromptu poolside jam session.
