Joan Baez begins farewell tour

In the 1960s, I lived in Cambridge, MA and worked at the Club 47 coffeehouse.

I am 76 now and live in Colorado…I remember Newport Folk Music Fest…

There I served drinks and pastry to Mini Farina, Joan Baez’s sister, who died and Richard, Tom Paxton, Phil Ochs, Judy Collins…and Joan Baez. I believe a crazy man named Bryon was the manager…it was a folk scene is the age of protest music, new and traditional.  Grace and Ray were my best friends. I played a little guitar and later lived in the Italian North End. All the while, I attended night school at Harvard Extension, from which after thirteen years, voila — a B>A>. The town was a ferment of social protest, marches, music, coffee houses. No Starbucks then. I loved Farewell Angelina… had at one time all her albums. Knew all the songs. Dylan too.

Joan Baez was a gift of passion, peace, song, and beauty. Her new album due out soon.
