Kris Kristofferson's triumphant return to the Newport Folk Festival last weekend inspired us to share this recently discovered photo from Melva's archive.  Kris and Vince hitchhiked together to Newport in '69 at the invitation of Johnny Cash.   Cash had recently recorded Vince's song 'Wrinkled Crinkled Wadded Dollar Bill", and famously asked Kris to play a few tunes during his set that year.
