The Troubadour Concert Series and Highbridge Spring Water is excited to present the legendary folksinger, songwriter, author, balladeer, activist and artist JOAN BAEZ for a full concert at the beautiful Lexington Opera House.

The 1960s Baez often used her music to express her social views. Her self-titled first album was released in 1960 and not long after its release she met the then-unknown singer-songwriter Bob Dylan. Starting in small coffeehouses and then theatres, Joan Baez became an established folk artist as well as a worldwide voice for social change. She sang “We Shall Overcome” at the March on Washington in 1963 organized by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

For more than 50 years, Baez has been a central figure in the cultural and social life of the United States. As singer, an activist, a peacenik and songwriter she had a huge hit with self penned “Diamonds and Rust.”

The Troubadour Concert Series is proud and excited to bring Joan Baez for a return visit to central Kentucky.

Gregg Allman is one of the co-founders of the popular 1970s rock group the Allman Brothers Band. He started out performing as a teenager and had several groups with his older brother Duane before the pair helped create the Allman Brothers Band in 1969, known for their bluesy, improvisational style. As the principal architects of Southern rock, the Allman Brothers Band forged this new musical offshoot from elements of blues, jazz, soul, R&B and rock and roll. Along with the Grateful Dead and Cream, they help advance rock as a medium for improvisation. 
The group’s marathon concerts, best captured on the classic The Allman Brothers Band At Fillmore East (1971), are the stuff of rock legend. Their success paved the way for other bands from the South, including Lynyrd Skynyrd, the Marshall Tucker Band, and the Charlie Daniels Band. To date, the Allman Brothers Band have had ten gold albums, four of which have been certified platinum.
 
The group’s first two studio albums contained classic songs like “Dreams,” “Whipping Post,” “Midnight Rider” and “Revival.”  Gregg Allman helped write several songs on the recording, including the now-classic “Midnight Rider.”
 
This is a huge event for the Lexington area and a concert not to be missed!
