Baez in Austin

I went to see Joan perform in Austin last Friday, 10/27. I'm a lifetime fan of Joan for many reasons and I must say that seeing her felt surreal. Her voice was absolutely amazing. Amazing. When she started a very, very touching version of Diamonds and Rust I was shifting from "is this real?" to "holy crap this is real!"

She did an astounding version of Christmas in Washington that brought tears to my eyes. I am so happy, and so thankful that I was able to see her live in person. I have wanted to my entire life and now the time came.

Her mother was in the audience, too, and she stood up to thunderous applause. It reminded me though that Mimi is gone.

She is an amazing musician and an amazing person. I'm very touched and thankful that we have her in this world.
