Hagman Joan Baez: Folk guitar (39) RE: Joan Baez: Folk guitar 29 Sep 15

Saw her in Melbourne last Friday night. First five or six songs were solo acoustic - for those who don't like listening to tuning-up, you'll be pleased to know she has a guitar roadie.. Playing was excellent - I'm not a guitarist, so can't go into the techo stuff, but playing much more than just capable. Looked to me like she was playing little Martin guitars, but can't be sure. They sounded great. Her voice has dropped a bit, obviously.

Fans of Phil Ochs will be comforted to know that she still plays "There But For Fortune." Also played a couple of tunes by and about a bloke called Bob Dylan. In the main it was all earlish repertoire (even "Silver Dagger" from the first 1960 Vanguard LP.) But no "Night They Drove Old Dixie Down"...

Remember this is a performer who was playing Carnegie Hall solo at 19. She knows her stuff!
