Joan Baez celebrated her 75th birthday on Saturday, January 27, 2016 at New York’s historic Beacon Theatre. The concert spans her 50+ years as a musician with live performances and special guests. Starring David Bromberg, Jackson Browne, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Judy Collins, David Crosby, Emmylou Harris, Indigo Girls, Damien Rice, Paul Simon, Mavis Staples, Nano Stern, Richard Thompson, Joan Baez.
This was a fun concert to watch, especially with all of the guests who know and have worked with her performing her music. There isn’t much talk of her past, other than a few of Baez’ reminiscences. However, she does speak openly about her activism. If you enjoy her music, you’ll love this program. It is worth a watch.
