Gracias a la Vida – A Tribute to Joan Baez

To celebrate May Day we bring a special tribute to Joan Baez who has sung for peace, for workers, for the environment and for social justice for over six decades.

Performing on the night will be: Julie & Rachel Witney, Anne Infante, Ann Bermingham, Helen Rowe, Sue Wighton, Jumping Fences, Maree Robertson, Mary Brettell, Mervyn Langford and Christine Venner-Westaway.

Gracias a la Vida – A tribute to Joan Baez: Joan Baez has been singing since the late 1950s, breaking though at the 1959 Newport Folk Festival. She is an outstanding singer of songs of protest and social justice, recording more than 30 albums, giving voice to the civil rights and anti-war movements, singing against racism and discrimination and for the environment. This tribute features singers from Brisbane's folk music community who have come together to celebrate Joan Baez's wonderful contribution to song and struggle. [website].
