Joan Baez





Joan Baez's voice is high-pitched and clear, and her style is simple when she sings traditional and contemporary folk songs. She started her singing career in a café in Boston, and her performance at the Newport Folk Song Festival in 1959 attracted the attention of most people. Since then, she has appeared in universities, concert halls, TV singing, and recorded many records.

She began to sing publicly at the age of 17, and appeared on the cover of Time magazine at the age of 21. Baez's achievements in the field of music have influenced more than one generation of youth. But she is best known for her deep participation in social movements since the 1960s. Anti-Vietnam war, racial equality, environmental movement. Baez co-founded a school for non-violent resistance and was briefly arrested and imprisoned for protesting against military actions.

The most commendable thing is that her sensitivity to social issues and her enthusiasm for social care has never declined over time. In recent years, Baez has continued to care about anti-nuclear, climate change, and the turbulent gender equality movement "Me too".


瓊·貝茲的聲音高亢清晰,演唱傳統和當代譜寫的民歌時風格簡潔。她在波士頓的咖啡館開始自己的演唱生涯,1959年紐波特民歌節的表演使她受到國人矚目。此後她又現身於大學、音樂廳、電視唱歌,並錄製了很多唱片。

17歲就開始公開演唱、21歲登上《時代》雜誌的封面,貝茲在音樂領域的成績斐然,影響了超過一個世代的青年。但她最著名的,還是從60年代以來在社會運動上的深度參與。反越戰、種族平權、環境運動。貝茲與他人共同成立過非暴力反抗學校,更曾因抗議軍方行動而短暫被捕入獄。

最難能可貴的是,她對社會議題的敏感度和社會關懷的熱情不曾因時間而有所衰退。近年來,貝茲持續關心反核、氣候變遷以及風起雲湧的性別平權運動「Me too」。
