1959 – Joan Baez appears at the first Newport Folk Festival, as the special guest of Bob Gibson. Baez was so eager to appear on stage she apparently did a tour of the green room asking performers to invite her to sing with them. Her spot causes a sensation among folk fans, and the performance is later released on the compilation Folk Festival, Vol. 2.
