Poster has a drawing of a large seated human figure with long hair, wearing a blue vest and playing a guitar. The top edge of the poster has the text: "Hootenanny Tonight / Real / Americana /Zowee!" The background of the poster is made up of heavily stylized blue letters that make up various non-sense as well as music related phrases such as: "Oh thrill / realize how far / music has come!" and "Ethnic is a word / stump stomping is now valid. Ho!". The bottom edge of the poster has the text: "Tate's Mule Barn ats in Suggin's Holler / How to git: go Down residew road aways to Freebles Crossin / andbear left to Winkles Weed Grove. 'En Shove off at Lenny's Landing / Hit Dillers Dock then skirt round Hassle Ridge and head up over Hobb's / Hill and down past Tooley's Marsh and cross Loon Crick. its on / yonder of Hooples Berry Bog. You cain't miss it! / Tonight.". This poster is a sarcastic parody of the emerging hippie-folk culture of the early 1960s. [LMC]
