'''Joan Baez''' (b. 1941) is an American singer-songwriter and activist. Baez was one of the most notable protest singers of the 1960s, standing against UsefulNotes/TheVietnamWar and supporting the CivilRightsMovement and environmentalism. Though her own songwriting skills have been praised, she is mainly regarded as an interpreter of others' works, most prominently those of Music/BobDylan (with whom she had a close personal and musical relationship in the early '60s).

Though her own songwriting skills have been praised, she is mainly regarded as an interpreter of others' works, most prominently those of BobDylan.

Baez's music is fairly varied, ranging from folk to country to pop. Her best-known song is likely 1975's "Diamonds & Rust", a nostalgic reflection on Baez's failed relationship with Bob Dylan. It was notably covered by Music/JudasPriest on their album ''Sin after Sin''.
