Framed photograph of Bob Dylan and Joan Baez performing at the Newport Casino during the 1963 Newport Folk Festival. The performance marked Dylan's first time on the Newport stage. He returned to play the Newport Folk Festival the following two years. His performance in 1965 is where he "went electric." Dylan's decision to play with an electric guitar is still considered to be on of the most controversal moments in music history. Signed by the artist in the lower right corner.
