Willie Nelson Picnic Concert Poster Group (1973-80) Willie Nelson began his much-loved tradition of holding a festival-style concert during the fourth of July in 1973. Willie had returned to Texas in 1970, after years of attempting something more than a Nashville career as a songwriter for other artists. His '73 album "Shotgun Willie" helped kickstart the musical genre that would come to be known as Outlaw Country, and Willie's first 4th of July Picnic (held near his home in Dripping Springs, Texas) would come to personify that style, becoming a favorite annual venue for acts like Jerry Jeff Walker and Waylon Jennings. This poster, featuring a nifty Jim Franklin illustration, measures 11" x 16", and is in NM- condition. Also included in this good-time lot is a poster for the 2003 Hardly Strictly Bluegrass free festival starring Willie (and signed by the designer, Moser) measuring 14" x 22, in VG+, and a 11" x 17" Laurel Springs Educational Center Benefit concert poster from 1980, in VG.
