Win tickets to the Joan Baez play

Font Size:

Legendary American folk singer, songwriter and activist Joan Baez is recognised as the voice of the peace movement and has been at the forefront of cultural and political life for more than 50 years.

Focusing on her rise from small-time folk singer to performing the music of Bob Dylan and Peter Seeger, and culminating in her brilliant performance at Woodstock in 1969, Joan Baez: The Road To Woodstock is a play about Baez’s commitment to the peace movement and the music that defined it.

Baez became the woman responsible for bringing the songs We Shall Overcome, Where Have All The Flowers Gone, Diamonds and Rust and The Band Played Waltzing Matilda to fame.

Australian singer Petra Elliott performs as Joan Baez, capturing the spirit of the music and the era. Performing alongside is Bekkii O’Connor as Janis Joplin and Musical Director Paul Watson as Bob Dylan and Pete Seeger.
