Joan Baez (born 1941)

Baez started her career as a folk singer in coffee houses around Boston and hit the national stage barefoot at the first Newport Folk Festival in 1959. By 1969, when she performed at Woodstock, she had recorded ten albums ranging from folk and protest music to Christmas carols and concept albums involving word poems. She was committed to civil rights, Vietnam War resistance, and non-violence. Baez was one of few members of the 1960s counterculture photographed by Karsh, who said she was “among the most natural of all the performers I have photographed.”
