hobbitwoman Is Joan Baez a fraud? (113* d) RE: Is Joan Baez a fraud? 23 Feb 02

Uncle Jaque, just saw Joan Baez in concert Wednesday night, and I can attest, it is definitely more about music and introducing new folk talent - never even mentioned the word Taliban! The only thing she said that was remotely "political" was when she dedicated "Christmas in Washington" to the families who lost loved ones in the 9/11 tragedy, and are now over in Afghanistan trying to help families who have lost loved ones in the fighting over there. She also made a remark about herself and her former disdain for the "old songs" and how at one time everything she sang had to have political merit, but now she sings songs just for the love of them.

You really ought to treat yourself and go see her! I think you'd enjoy it very much.
