My first concert was Willie Nelson in January of 1984. I was only eight years old. My mum took me as her date since my dad was sick. We trekked across town to the Universal/Gibson Amphitheatre which was later demolished for The Wizarding World of Harry Potter attraction at Universal Studios Hollywood. I remember it being cold and rainy. Regardless of the weather, Angeleno’s were decked out in their country finest. Dark denim, blinged out belts, rhinestone-embellished cowboy hats and Americana regalia filled the theatre.

Craft Recordings is proud to announce the release of Joan Baez’s Live at Woodstock, available today (8/2) on all digital and streaming platforms. For the very first time, fans can hear the influential folk singer’s entire set, as it was performed at the historic festival 50 years ago. Live at Woodstock features nearly an hour of music and interstitial stories, including “Sweet Sir Galahad,” “I Shall Be Released,” and a stunning a cappella rendition of “Swing Low Sweet Chariot.”
Joan Baez is one of the most prominent and iconic singer-songwriters to ever grace the stage. Her career arc, which was forged in the crucible of the early 60's folk revival, spans six decades. She has released over 30 albums, most of them to critical acclaim. In 2017 she was elected into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
On October 12, CRAFT RECORDINGS will re-release iconic folk singer JOAN BAEZ's self-titled debut album both on vinyl and digitally. Recorded in the summer of 1960, Joan Baez's first record introduced the world to the pure and soaring soprano of a then-19-year-old folk singer, who had recently come to prominence after the 1959 Newport Folk Festival.
Due to popular demand, Joan Baez will extend her extensive 2018 tour into 2019 including stops at D.C.’s Warner Theatre, Northampton’s John M. Greene Hall, Knoxville’s Tennessee Theatre, Austin’s Paramount Theatre and more. See below for complete tour details and on sale dates. Tickets are available for purchase at www.joanbaez.com/tour.
Whistle Down The Wind, the highly anticipated new album from Joan Baez, debuts this week at #18 on Billboard’s Top Current Albums chart and #4 on the Americana/Folk Albums chart—Baez’s strongest chart position since 1975’s Diamonds & Rust. The album is also finding success internationally debuting at #47 in the U.K., #36 in France, #6 in Sweden and #8 in Germany.
Acclaimed artist and activist Joan Baez will begin a run of North American dates beginning on September 11 in Ithaca, NY.
