1961 – Joan Baez plays her first major New York concert at a sold-out Town Hall. The New York Times folk critic Robert Shelton acclaimed the performance, writing, “That superb soprano voice, as lustrous and rich as old gold, flowed purely all evening with a wondrous ease. Her singing [unwound] like a spool of satin.”
