American folk singer and songwriter Joan Baez has performed publicly for fifty years, releasing more than thirty albums. Usually considered a folk singer, her music has ranged from rock and pop to country and gospel, and she has always been a passionate activist in favour of nonviolence, civil and human rights, and the environment. Famous for her early relationship with Bob Dylan, she is has recorded many of his songs, including Love Is Just A Four-Letter Word and Farewell Angelina, and has been an outstanding interpreter of the work of artists as varied as Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, Phil Ochs, Kris Kristofferson, The Beatles and Stevie Wonder. Joan Baez remains a musical force of nature of huge influence. She marched on the front line of the civil rights movement with Martin Luther King, 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, and stood with old friend Nelson Mandela in London’s Hyde Park as the world celebrated his 90th birthday. Her earliest recordings fed a host of traditional ballads into the rock vernacular, and this tradition of mutual mentoring that continues on her new album, Whistle Down The Wind – her first studio album in a decade, since 2008’s critically acclaimed Day After Tomorrow. The latest album was produced by three-time Grammy Award winner Joe Henry and brings together material by some of Joan Baez’s favourite composers, including Tom Waits, Mary Chapin Carpenter (The Things That We Are made Of), Josh Ritter and Eliza Gilkysen. There is a song by producer Joe Henry (the profound Civil War) and a moving version of Zoe Mulford’s The President Sang Amazing Grace, particularly sad and poignant in light of recent events in the USA. Joan Baez sings with great passion and her voice has become even more persuasive with the years. Highly recommended.
