“She was something else, almost too much to take. Her voice was like that of a siren from off some Greek island. Just the sound of it could put you into a spell. She was an enchantress... She'd make you forget who you were.” —Bob Dylan
CAP UCLA welcomes folk icon and activist Joan Baez to Royce Hall for one night only as part of her Fare Thee Well...Tour 2018. For more than five decades, Baez has been a musical force of incalculable influence. She marched on the front line of the civil rights movement with Martin Luther King, Jr., shined a spotlight on the Free Speech Movement, took to the fields with Cesar Chavez, organized resistance to the Vietnam War, inspired Vaclav Havel in his fight for a Czech Republic, saluted the Dixie Chicks for their courage to protest the Iraq war, stood with old friend Nelson Mandela in London’s Hyde Park as the world celebrated his 90th birthday and, most recently, protested the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline at Standing Rock Sioux Reservation.
To this day, she continues to stand passionately on behalf of causes she embraces. As a special offer, all ticket buyers will receive a CD or digital download of her new album, Whistle Down The Wind, hailed by Rolling Stone as“ a moving reflection and summation of Baez’s life as a singer, musician and activist.”
