Joan Baez last night in Toronto

Postby acoustic1 » Sun Feb 28, 2016 6:57 am

Hi everyone:
Saw Joan Baez for the 4th time last night in Toronto. As always, a class act!
Here's the 1 video I shot before I was shut down. But it was Woody Guthrie's Deportees, one of my top 5 Joan songs!

Speaking of Joan Baez, I thought this was sort of interesting: I had read that she and Emmylou knew each other, but I had not known that Joan Baez paints and has a painting of Emmylou she painted herself hanging in her living room.

"Baez's house has few obvious mementos of her career: no wall of gold records, no photos with famous friends. Instead there are paintings, by Baez, of musicians and activists. Some are in her living room – Emmylou Harris; Baez's late sister Mimi – and more are in a converted pool house that's now her painting studio. There, you'll find portraits of David Crosby and congressman and civil-rights icon John Lewis."
