Joan Baez

Eligible since: 1985
Argument for induction: Joan Baez was there (at just 19 years old, no less) at the first Newport Folk Festival in 1959, marched with Martin Luther King Jr. for civil rights, was the face of the early Sixties folk boom introduced Bob Dylan to the masses and, with 1975's Diamonds & Rust, composed a classic title track that was subsequently covered by no less than Judas Priest. Baez was a force vocally, musically and politically amidst a male-dominated folk scene, and remains striking talent today.
