UCSB Arts & Lectures presents Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee Joan Baez when she returns to Santa Barbara as she says goodbye to life on the road with her Fare Thee Well Tour 2018, on Thursday, November 1, at 8 p.m. at the Arlington Theatre, 1317 State St., Santa Barbara.
Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee Baez has announced her final formal, extended tour
Baez’s new album, Whistle Down the Wind, gathers material by some of her favorite composers, including Tom Waits, Josh Ritter, Eliza Gilkyson and Mary Chapin Carpenter.
The soundtrack for the tumultuous ’60s is heard on Baez’s remarkably timeless Vanguard LPs, and from the beginning, her life’s work was mirrored in her music. Baez sang about freedom and Civil Rights everywhere, from the backs of flatbed trucks in Mississippi to the steps of the Lincoln Memorial at Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s March on Washington in 1963, and her spirit of activism has remained intertwined in her life and music throughout the decades.
