A rare opportunity to experience one of the world's great performers. America's legendary folk singer, songwriter and activist Joan Baez will perform in Christchurch for the first time. A musical and political force of nature whose influence is incalculable.
Her music encompasses everything from folk rock to country and gospel music. The powerful messages, sung in her passionate, sensitive voice remain as compelling today as when they were first heard.
"Baez remains a true icon of the music world - with a performance that is powerful, tender and strident"
"Her voice is as clear and distinctive as it ever was and her ability to tell a story still as spellbinding" The Independent Sep 2014
"Baez switched between ballads, political songs and gospel in a remarkable show that earned her a standing ovation" **** The Guardian Sep 2014
