The most accomplished interpretive folksinger of the 1960s, Joan Baez has influenced nearly every aspect of popular music in a career still going strong. Gifted with one of the purest and most powerful sopranos of the last century, Baez sings in support of her profound belief in human rights and nonviolent solutions to world problems. From the songs she chooses--of struggle with the forces of oppression, to the organizations she founded, such as Humanitas International--her life and musical career are inextricably entwined. In a career that has spanned four decades, Baez has earned seven Gold Records and continues to raise the bar on the standards of contemporary folk music, pop, country, and rock.
It was a special day when Joan Baez graced the Jaqua Concert Hall in 2004. We are pleased at her return.
