Often called the "Queen of the Folksingers", JOAN BAEZ (born in 1961) first appeared at the Newport Folk Festival in 1959. From 1962-1964, she was one of America's most popular folk singers, appearing in concert and singing at political events, including the 1963 March on Washington. That year, Baez began the first of several tours with Bob Dylan, and her songs turned from traditional folk music to more socially-oriented works. Baez, who earned fame for both her singing and her political activism, had hits with "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down" and "Diamonds and Rust". JOAN BAEZ, SR. (1913-2013) may not have been quite the revolutionary artist her daughter was, but together, they did share several moments that solidified their strong family bond and political events. In 1967, at the height of the Vietnam War controversy, both mother and daughter were arrested for blocking entrance to a U.S. Air Force induction center.
