Joan Baez Farewell Tour: Baez has organized a farewell tour that will bring her to Spain on July 24, 25, 27 and 28. Rather than risking losing her voice during a live performance, Baez has organized a farewell tour. Her first Spanish appearance will be at the San Sebastián Jazz Festival, followed by the Jardines Terramar Festival in the Catalan city of Sitges, the Porta Ferrada Festival in Girona and the Universal Music Festival at Madrid’s Teatro Real.
Joan Baez – the female icon of US folk music in the 1960s and ’70s, a singer whose piercing soprano tone dazzled Bob Dylan – is losing her voice. The assertion is not the result of a nasty critical review or a secret suspicion harbored by her fans. The 78-year-old artist is the first person to admit that her vocal cords are not what they used to be: “This muscle that makes the difference is not making it anymore, it needs a lot of work.” Photo Credit: Getty Images.
