Folk singer Joan Baez sings at Newport Folk Festival
Singer Joan Baez waves to the crowd as she finishes her set before an estimated 7,000 people gathered on the shores of Narraganset Bay for the Newport Folk Festival in Newport, RI, on August 8, 1987. The first day of the 1987 festival drew much larger crowd than last year when fewer fans turned out to see lesser known performers. Arlo Guthrie, Judy Collins and Bonnie Raitt perform on August 9.
