Joan Baez/Bob Dylan – “Farewell Angelina”
The iconic duo of the 60’s folk era, Joan Baez and Bob Dylan, wowed audiences with their live duets. In 1963, as the reigning ‘Queen of Folk’, Joan’s endorsement of the promising young songwriter played a huge role in Dylan’s early rise to fame. Dylan states “...something told me she was my counterpart, that she was the one my voice would find perfect harmony with…” (Chronicles Vol. 1). Suzette is well known for her outstanding tribute show to Joan Baez – ‘Shining – A Diamond in the Rust’, which received a rousing standing ovation at The Port Fairy Folk Festival and at all festivals around Australia.
Join Suzette Herft and Patrick Evans as they recreate the magic of this iconic folk duo that earned a place in our hearts and psyche and in our musical history.
"The Times They Are A Changing” - A snapshot of folk songs that have challenged the status quo and have been part of the landscape of social revolution and change over the years. (1 hour/ 1.5 hours)
It seems that these songs are even more relevant now as young people take to the streets to call or action and change on issues that matter to them.
"Come mothers and Fathers throughout the land
Don’t criticize what you can’t understand
Your sons and your daughters are beyond your command
Your old road is rapidly ageing.
Please get out of the new one if you can’t lend a hand
For the times they are a changing."
