Tales From the Tavern in association with the Artist Advocacy Foundation presents Joan Baez Under the Stars at the Solvang Festival Theater at 7:30 p.m. The esteemed singer/songwriter series moves to the larger venue of the Solvang Festival Theater from its usual home at The Maverick for this presentation of the legendary folk icon in concert one night only. The Solvang concert promises to be a thrilling prelude to more Under the Stars concerts and presentations planned for the Festival Theater. Baez’s appearance in association with Tales from the Tavern also represents an expanded community experience for the highly regarded “troubadour” series as it steps up to the larger outdoor venue from the pin-drop, cozy confines of its home base at The Maverick Saloon and burnishes its reputation as the “must play” West Coast showcase for America’s greatest singer/songwriters. Tickets for Joan Baez in concert at the Solvang Festival Theater are available at: www.talesfromthetavern.com or by calling 688-0383. Doors open at 6 p.m.
