NEWPORT, R.I. (AP) — It doesn’t look like Bob Dylan will play this year’s Newport Folk Festival in Rhode Island — even though he has a standing invitation to do so. But his presence will be felt. It was at the event 50 years ago that Dylan made rock history — by ditching his acoustic guitar and going electric. The three-song set is seen as one of the key events in rock ‘n’ roll history — because it got other acts to plug in and make new audiences. How big of an event? The Fender Stratocaster Dylan played at Newport was sold at auction for nearly $1 million. It remains the highest price paid for a guitar at auction. The festival runs July 24-26.
