Joan Baez livestream
8:30 p.m. Saturday. $15 in advance, $20 day of show. rocklandstrand.com.
Not only is Joan Baez a celebrated folk singer, she’s a talented painter and there’s a unique opportunity to spend time online with her as she talks about her latest show, “Mischief Makers.” The show is running through Feb. 14 at Seager Gray Gallery in Mill Valley, California, but since most of us won’t make it there, you can instead attend an artist reception. Baez, who turns 80 on Jan. 9, will be interviewed, and you’ll enjoy a virtual tour of her portraits of notable Americans including V.P.-elect Kamala Harris, Dr. Anthony Fauci, Greta Thunberg, Michael Moore, Colin Kaepermick, Emma Gonzalez, Patti Smith, counter-culture icon Wavy Gravy and Pulitzer Prize-winning author Alice Walker.
