NEW YORK CITY, Forest Hills Music Festival,
19 August 1963, Joan Baez Concert

Forest Hills Tennis Stadium              Forest Hills Tennis Stadium

     In 1923, Forest Hills Stadium was constructed on open farmland. As the city rose around it, the venue became one of the cathedrals of tennis. It is the original home of the U.S. Open and Davis Cup, and was graced by champions.
     In the 1960s, a new inspiration took center court as the Stadium hosted a series of iconic concerts. The Beatles were helicoptered onto the grass courts for two consecutive sold-out shows in 1964. Barbra Streisand took a break from her role in Broadway's 'Funny Girl' to play a concert at the stadium that same year. Frank Sinatra, Jimi Hendrix, Diana Ross, The Rolling Stones, The Who, Talking Heads, and of course Bob Dylan (1963 and 1964 as Joan Baez's guest, 1965 with his new electric band) also shook the bleachers.


    The FOREST HILLS MUSIC FESTIVAL 1963 lineup is impressive: Joan Baez and (unannounced) Bob Dylan, The Kingston Trio, Ray Charles, Peter, Paul and Mary, Ella Fitzgerald, the Dave Brubeck Quartet, Sammy Davis Jr., Johnny Mathis and The Hootenanny '63...

   Bob Dylan was a surprise guest in Joan Baez's concert. He sang five songs, the last two being duets with Joan Baez:

     Only A Pawn In The Game,
     A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall,
     Troubled And I Don't Know Why,
     Blowin' In The Wind.
