1959: Joan Baez appears at the first Newport Folk Festival as the special guest of singer Bob Gibson. Baez is so eager to appear on stage she does a tour of the green room asking performers to invite her to sing with them. Her spot causes a sensation among folk fans, and the performance is later released on the compilation Folk Festival, Vol. 2.
