Performers: Earl Scruggs Review
Date: May 7-9, 1977
Venue: Billy Jack’s – Rochester, New York
This is an original 1977 contract & rider for an Earl Scruggs concert, acquired directly from Paragon Agency, a subsidiary of Capricorn Records which was the premiere southern rock label at the time. It is in very good condition. It appears to have been signed by Earl Scruggs but these contracts were often signed by an agent/manager/proxy on behalf of the artist so we can’t say for sure whether it is his own original signature.
The contract/rider is 4 pages long including the cover/signature page. It measures approximately 8.5″x11″. It includes details about fees, technical specifications, refreshments and other particulars. Like a lot of original contracts it includes corrections, alterations and staple holes original to the agency, as well as small creases and some shelf wear. Photos are of the actual item you will receive.
If you’re a collector or just a big Earl Scruggs fan this is your chance to own a rare piece of music history!
