Broadside, one page, 14" x 8.5", printed in black ink on tan stock, incorporating six vignettes. Small chip from top edge without text loss. "The Club 47 once was a coffee house in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Although it was only open ten years (January,1958 to April, 1968) and seated only about 80 people, it became the flagship of the Boston area's coffee house armada and one of the centers of the 1960s folk music revival. It hosted many of the heroes of traditional music: Appalachian dulcimer players, Cowboy singers and storytellers, Delta blues men and women, gospel groups, Celtic artists, jug bands, bluegrass bands... legendary artists from around the globe. You could also hear new voices at the Club 47 ... the young Joan Baez trying out a Child ballad for the first time, or that new kid, Bob Dylan, up from New York, testing the crowd's reaction to some new lyrics set to an old melody. Judy Collins, Richie Havens, Van Morrison, Eric Anderson, Tom Paxton, John Hammond, Tom Rush and a host of others came to that tiny room, and learned...." (Tom Rush). This is an original broadside, not a cheap, modern reprint. On the back are on-the-spot, blue-ink sketches of folk musicians, drawn and signed by artist/sculptor Jonathan Shahn. Jon was in the Boston folk-revival scene back in the early '60s, and he often used the versos of handouts and broadsides for his sketches. Jon worked at Club 47, part-time as the dishwasher and part-time as a musician.

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame acts such as The Band and Simon and Garfunkel played concerts in the gym. Singer-songwriter Bob Dylan was a no-show for a March 1964 concert at Cousens, sending 2,000 mightily unhappy fans home....." This is an original broadside, not a cheap, modern reprint.
