Fare Thee Well Tour: Joan Baez
Legendary singer, songwriter, activist and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee Joan Baez, has announced an extensive 2018 world tour, including UK dates in March and May.
In conjunction with the tour, Baez will release a new studio album ‘Whistle Down The Wind’ (Proper Records), produced by Joe Henry, in early March 2018. This will be her first new record since 2008’s acclaimed ‘Day After Tomorrow’.
Speaking of the tour, which will begin on March 2nd in Stockholm, Baez says 'While 2018 will be my last year of formal extended touring, I’m looking forward to being on the road with a beautiful new album about which I am truly proud. I welcome the opportunity to share this new music as well as longtime favorites with my audiences around the world.'
Baez’s career has spanned over 50 years during which she marched on the front lines of the Civil Rights movement, unselfconsciously introduced Bob Dylan to the world in 1963, inspired Vaclav Havel to fight for a Czech Republic, and continues to this day to stand passionately on behalf of causes she embraces. She is the recipient of many honors including the Recording Academy’s Lifetime Achievement Award and Amnesty International’s Ambassador of Conscience award.
Joan last performed in the UK in 2014 when she sold out 4 nights at London’s Royal Festival Hall, following a sold-out 21 date tour in 2012.
The most accomplished interpretive folksinger of the 1960s, Joan Baez has influenced nearly every aspect of popular music in a career still going strong. Baez is possessed of a once-in-a-lifetime soprano, which, since the late '50s, she has put in the service of folk and pop music as well as a variety of political causes.
