Watch: Jim James and Janet Weiss play Newport Folk Fest with Kermit The Frog

The performance was in promotion of 'The Muppet Movie' rerelease

Jim James and Janet Weiss played the Newport Folk Fest this weekend, where they played “The Rainbow Connection” with Kermit The Frog.

The Sesame Street star sang the track, which is from 1979’s The Muppet Movie, along with James, making for a sweet, yet out of character duet. The backing band for the performance featured one of rock music’s greatest drummers, Janet Weiss. The performance appears to serve as a promotion for the 40th anniversary rerelease of The Muppet Movie.
