Joan Baez has just marked 50 years since she began her legendary residency at Boston’s famed Club 47. She remains a musical force of nature whose influence is incalculable - marching on the front line of the civil rights movement with Martin Luther King, inspiring Vaclav Havel in his fight for a Czech Republic, singing on the first Amnesty International tour and just this year, standing alongside Nelson Mandela when the world celebrated his 90th birthday in London’s Hyde Park.
Joan Baez visited the UK in late June 2008 to headline the Glastonbury Acoustic Stage and followed that up with a completely sold out concert at The Royal Albert Hall garnering some superb reviews
Joan Baez’s 24th studio album, _Day After Tomorrow_ is her first studio album since 2003’s _Dark Chords On a Big Guitar_ and follows her acclaimed 2005 live album _Bowery Songs_. Produced by Steve Earle, _Day After Tomorrow_ continues Baez’s role as a musical curator and interpreter of songs and includes material by Tom Waits, Elvis Costello, Patty Griffin and Earle himself.
"Simply astounding" _The Times_
"A royal presence" _The Independent_
