Before the 2016 presidential election, legendary political folk singer Joan Baez apparently hadn't written a song for 25 years, but she has been prompted by recent events to put musical pen to paper. She says of this composition that it's "not a good song, but it will make people laugh". Now I wonder who it could be about?


  1. I'm not sure what age Joan is (not that one should ever ask that of a woman!), but she's certainly looking and sounding pretty good.

  2. Perhaps I'm less gentlemanly than you, but according to Wikipedia she's 76. I agree with you; she's looking and sounding good.

  3. Just like her predecessor in the radical American folk tradition Woody Guthrie nailed Trump's racist father in the early 50's.

    1. Fascinating; I haven't come across that before. Like father, like son indeed!
