Baby Boomers: Joan Baez: An American icon


On Thursday, June 6, my wife, daughter and I attended the Joan Baez concert at the Minnesota Zoo in Apple Valley.

A concert at the zoo? Yes, it is called Music in the Zoo with 30 acts playing every type of music from folk (Baez) to country (Willie Nelson) to rock (Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys) and everything in between this summer.

To baby boomers (1,400 in attendance), Baez is more than a folk singer. We know her as an activist in social and political causes.
