Subject:  Re: Mickey & Joan Baez
Message:  When we were at the Bread and Rosese Festival, Mickey and Joan used to dress up in wigs and sunglasses, and we would go to that little park in Berkley that was near the stadium where Mimi did the Festival. Mick and Joan would sing for 30 or 40 minutes, and no one ever recognized them. They were like two kids in costume... well they were two kids in costume.

People would walk by and make comments about how good they were, but they never asked names. Joan did her own stuff, and some would recognize the song as a Joan Baez song, and not realize it was Joan singing.

They thought it was the funniest thing, and would laugh for hours about how they fooled people.
