Joan Baez is the diva of folk rock. She has made gorgeous records of her own, is a fine interpreter of other artists' material and has long been a champion of up and coming songwriters, helping the careers of Mary Chapin Carpenter and Dar Williams.
Baez, above, appears with Richard Shindell at 8 p.m. Saturday at Tampa Theatre, 711 Franklin St., Tampa. $35. (727) 898-2100 or (813) 287-8844.
