Paul Simon To Join Joan Baez Birthday Celebration At Beacon Theatre

Joan Baez has recruited an all-star lineup for her 75th birthday celebration – including Paul Simon, Mavis Staples and Richard Thompson – planned for January 27th at New York City’s Beacon Theatre. That event will launch the folk pioneer’s upcoming North American tour, which spans 18 dates throughout February and March.

Baez’s Beacon show – which also includes Judy Collins, Jackson Browne, Mary Chapin Carpenter, David Bromberg, Damien Rice, Emmylou Harris, Indigo Girls and Nano Stern – will be recorded for television as part of PBS’ Great Performances series.
