Thread Name: I just discovered Joan Baez
Subject: RE: I just discovered Joan Baez
Amy,

I lived in Boston in the late 50's and remember being one of Joan's fans in the coffeehouse. She was a special performer who could hold an audience, PLAY that guitar and sing beautifully! I used to love to hear her sing Geordie. When she became famous, most of us were not surprised. Her rise to fame seemed to come so easily. It was her destiny I guess.
