Yes, the Joan Baez concert on the evening of July 23 at the Edmonds Center for the Arts is sold out.
However, if you are a die-hard fan (you're not alone) and you still want to go to the show, here's a way to try:
Officials at the center suggest that you give the box office a call at 425-275-4485 on the day of the show to find out if anyone has sold back their tickets. It happens.
Baez's current tour takes her to the Vancouver (British Columbia) Folk Festival on Saturday, the Mount Baker Theatre in Bellingham on Sunday and the Washington Center for the Arts in Olympia on Tuesday.
Since the Edmonds performance is closest to Seattle, the tickets went fast, officials said.
The Edmonds Center for the Arts has garnered a reputation as an intimate venue with great acoustics. Lots of performers are coming back because they like it, too.
For those smart people who already have their tickets, you're in for a treat.
Though she's now 73, Baez and her voice are as beautiful as ever.
She's still singing about peace, civil rights, social justice and love, including many of her greatest hits.
Baez was only 17 when she first performed at the 1959 Newport Folk Festival.
Though regarded as the first lady of folk music, Baez performs other genres such as folk rock, pop, country and gospel.
Over the years, the San Francisco bay area native who also is fluent in Spanish, has released 30 albums.
Although a songwriter herself, Baez is generally regarded as an interpreter of other people's work, having recorded songs by the Allman Brothers Band, The Beatles, Jackson Browne, Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, Violeta Parra, Woody Guthrie, the Rolling Stones, Pete Seeger, Paul Simon, Stevie Wonder, Ryan Adams, Josh Ritter, Steve Earle and Natalie Merchant.
