Joan Baez will perform at the Grand Hall at Prague’s Lucerna on October 16, the promoter of the concert has announced. The US folk singer, who is 73, has performed several times in the city since the fall of Communism. She has a number of connections with this part of the world, including a long-term friendship with the late president Václav Havel, whom she first visited in 1988, and was a vocal supporter of Czechoslovak dissidents.
