    Collection of photographs, audio recordings, ephemera, flyers, and programs which document the east and west coast folk and rock music scenes during the 1960s and 1970s including the Sky River Rock Festival, the Indian Neck Folk Festival, and various concerts. Photographs represent Earl Crabb's documentation of music events and his studio work. Earl Crabb photographed weight-lifting, fashion, album and magazine covers, circus performers, theater events, as well as people, markets, cities, and events in countries around the world. Ephemera includes flyers from folk clubs such as Cafe Yana in Boston, Massachusetts; Club 47 in Cambridge, Massachusetts; and the Freight and Salvage coffeehouse in Berkeley, California. Collection includes editions of Broadside magazine, Hootenanny, and the Philadelphia Folksong Society's Tune Up, which advertised these events. Of special interest are photographs from the Sky River Rock Festival, 1968-1970, in Washington State, and early editions of "Humbead's Revised Map of the World" produced in Berkeley, California.
