    Bob Dylan Newport Folk Festival Handbill (1963). The artist most famously (and infamously) associated with the Newport Folk Festival, Bob Dylan appeared without incident in 1963 and 1964, accompanied by his then-girlfriend Joan Baez (who in turn had been one of the big discoveries at the first Newport Folk Festival in 1959) and generated a firestorm of controversy at the fest in 1965. This handbill is from the '63 festival, at which Dylan performed on the opening day. A watershed year for Dylan, '63 saw him become increasingly prominent in the civil rights movement, grow disenchanted with the folk-protest movement, and release the seminal LP The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan. The handbill is in Very Fine condition with four very small holes, a couple of small tears, a fold crease, light wrinkling, and a small piece missing from the upper left corner. A great piece of music history.
