An original handbill/program used to advertise Bob Dylan’s first-ever concert, at Carnegie Chapter Hall in New York on November 4, 1961.
Billed as Dylan’s “First New York Concert” it was, more accurately, Dylan’s first concert anywhere. Prior to this show he’d only played club dates and a few guest spots on multi-artist bills. #BobDylan#CarnegieHall#Handbill http://recordmecca.com/products-page/museum-quality-collectibles/bob-dylan-1961-handbill-from-first-every-dylan-concert-at-carnegie-chapter-hall/
