Subject: Happy 67th birthday, Joan Baez

Joan Baez was born 67 years ago, on January 9, 1941. Can she really be 67? Can I really be 60?

I think it's time, once more, for reminiscences and appreciation of her. I'll start with a few live performances of her singing.

Classic Joan singing 500 Miles and There but for Fortune at a live concert in the 60s.

Historic Joan singing With God on Our Side with Bob Dylan at the Newport Folk Festival, 1963.

Contemporary Joan singing There but for Fortune in Glasgow in 2008.

She is a treasure, and I hope we have many more years to come with her music

God Bless

Cool Beans, you're right. She is 68. That makes her all the more remarkable. I wish I could be as active and dedicated as she is when I'm 68.

I was born the year previous, 1940, and I am 68 at last check - at least until August. I recall seeing Joan Baez at the World's Fair in Seattle, in around 1961. To that time, I had never heard such a pure voice from a folk performer since Ronnie Gilbert of The Weavers. I was a G.I. stationed at Ft. Lewis and spent a lot of weekends at and around the fair and various Seattle folk and jazz venues. A lot of performers gravitated to the area during the fair's run. Some of the natives are still very active in the northwest - Nancy Quense, Don Firth and Bob Nelson, to name three.

I have known a number of female singers who claim to have been influenced, at least initially, by Joan Baez and her approach to the material, as well as her vocal stylings. Along with Bob Dylan, nee Zimmerman, she remains a central figure in the early rise of folk performers in the public consciousness.
