Joan Baez @ Olympia, Paris, Oct 01 2014

Joan Baez @ Olympia, Paris, Oct 01 2014
Joan Baez has never been so popular in France , all shows are sold-out and she's playing 6 shows at the 2200 seats Olympia Theatre in Paris.
Of course the audience is very old and everyone is clapping nicely between songs.
For the very first part of the set she's on her own seating down before being joined by a percussionist and a piano/bass player.
As you can see on the setlist below , she's playing LOTS of cover songs including some from French singers even thought the pronunciation is far from being perfect.
She's talking in a fluent French between songs telling us a few jokes including one about the signification of her name in French which she could only get recently.

The voice is still intact, an overall very good show.
