USA, 1960, contemporary folk

Joan BaezJoan Baez

I think Baez isn’t as well respected as other folk singers because she does a lot of traditionals and covers. Of course people know her name, but who listens to her anymore? I love her renditions of selected Child Ballads. Folk singers like this have saved and are saving old Western European folk songs. She recorded this album when she was only 19.
