The rains came Sunday at the historic Newport Jazz and Folk festivals.

A 6-inch, five-hour downpour had musicians singing in the rain and diehard fans dancing in the mud at the windup of the Ben & Jerry's Newport Folk Festival.About 1,000 fans stuck it out until late afternoon, standing in 5 inches of water to hear the closing act. Four Voices in Harmony - a combination of Mary Chapin Carpenter, Joan Baez and the Indigo Girls, was midway through its 90-minute finale when a tremendous thunderclap boomed from the sky and killed the power.
