Newport 63 brought together the musical stars of an era for a musical experience that would not be forgotten by anyone attending the event.Newport had Pete Seeger singing his anthems like Where Have All The Flowers Gone and introducing Joan Baez and Bob Dylan singing Dylans songs together on stage.

It was Dylans Festival in many ways. Not only did Dylan sing but Peter, Paul and Mary sang many of his songs, as well.The First Half of The Folksingers introduces, not only Jeff and his Journey, but also introduces other important characters, including Janice Clayton, a well known female Folk Performer with a disturbing secret and Harold Wilde, a Singer and Playwright from New York with dark secrets of his own.

In the First Half of the Novel Jerry Gallagher provides extensive personal background on these and other major characters in the Novel.The Second Half of the book describes the actions and interactions of the major characters with each other and with others during the time they spend at The Newport Folk Festival in 1963.
