VIDEO: 17-Year-Old Joan Baez Performs at Famous “Club 47″ in Cambridge, MA (1958)

by , Open Culture:

The video above brings you way back (we think) to 1958, when Joan Baez was only 17, to a concert she played at the legendary Club 47 in Cambridge, Mass.

While the teenage ingénue broke onto the folk scene, Bob Dylan was still a student back in Hibbing, Minnesota.

Five years later, Baez introduced Dylan to the music world; the two dated for a while; and then, even while going their separate ways, they put their stamp on the 60s folk scene - a story that gets well documented in the book, Positively 4th Street: The Lives and Times of Joan Baez, Bob Dylan, Mimi Baez Farina and Richard Farina.

If you click here, you can watch Baez, now in her prime, perform a complete concert in 1965. The show runs 65 minutes and features 18 songs.
