Background Articles and Videos

“…Joan Chandos Baez (born January 9, 1941, in Staten Island, New York) is a folk singer and songwriter known for her highly individual vocal style.[1] Many of her songs are topical songs and deal with social issues.

She is perhaps best known for her hit “Diamonds & Rust” and her covers of Phil Ochs’s “There but for Fortune” and The Band’s “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down” (a top-five single on the United States charts in 1971), and to a lesser extent, “Farewell, Angelina” and “Love Is Just a Four-Letter Word” — along with “Joe Hill”, “Sweet Sir Galahad” and “We Shall Overcome” (three of the songs she performed at the 1969 Woodstock Festival).

She remains known for her long relationship with Bob Dylan and her lifelong passion for activism, notably in the areas of nonviolence, civil and human rights and, more recently, the environment.

Baez has performed publicly for over 50 years, released over 30 albums and recorded songs in at least eight languages. She is considered a folk singer although her music has strayed from folk considerably after the 1960s, encompassing everything from rock and pop to country and gospel. Although a songwriter herself, especially in the mid-1970s, Baez is most often regarded as an interpreter of other people’s work, covering songs by The Allman Brothers Band, The Beatles, Jackson Browne, Dylan, Woody Guthrie, The Rolling Stones, Pete Seeger, Paul Simon, Stevie Wonder and many other artists. In more recent years, she has found success interpreting songs of diverse songwriters such as Ryan Adams, Steve Earle and Natalie Merchant. …”

Joan Baez: The Folk Heroine Mellows With Age

by Mary Harron

“…In 1959 Joan Baez walked out on stage at the Newport Folk Festival and touched off a wave of adulation that was to reach almost religious proportions. She became the first post-rock ‘n’ roll youth idol, the patron saint of the new folk music: Time magazine ran a rather bemused cover story on the Baez phenomenon, fans would ask for locks of her hair.

She joined the civil rights marches in the South, walking beside Martin Luther King, turned down vast financial offers, and presented a public image that was a fusion of purity and rebellion. As the ‘60s passed her music went out of fashion, but she remained venerated as a symbol of the anti-war movement. Now, 25 years later, she can’t get a record deal in America: both the music and the social conscience are out of fashion.

In Europe, Baez still commands large audiences. On Wednesday night she filled Hammersmith Odeon. It’s a popularity that owes something to ‘60s nostalgia and something to the political climate, where her anti-nuclear stand touches off a more passionate response. At Hammersmith the audience was made up of middle-aged couples and serious clean-cut young people who looked much like her earnest college-student followers of the early ‘60s. As the audience clapped and sang along to the old songs—“A Hard Rain’s Gonna Fall”, “Suzanne”, “Let It Be”—one could feel a longing for old ideals, for simple answers, and communality. …”
