Hello kytrad /Jean,
I've PM'd you with a bunch of questions. Thanks for the input.
Folks should checkout the photos on Jean's site - some wonderful people captured there.
There is a NY Times article from July 27, 1963 listing the following as musician who "conceived and run" the 1963 Newport Folk Festival:
Theodore Bikel, Bill Clifton, Clarence Cooper, Erik Darling,
Jean Ritchie, Pete Seeger and Peter Yarrow.
So the photo possibly dates from 1963, unless "Coop" was involved with the earlier festivals.
Best wishes, Thomas.
