On February 14th, Joan Baez topped the list of artists who performed at Sweethearts for Seva, an intimate Valentine's Day benefit concert held at San Francisco's legendary Bimbo's 365 Club. The evening of musical duets included Steve Earle, who joined Joan, Tracy & David Grisman and Tuck & Patti. Mr. & Mrs. Wavy Gravy hosted the event.
Joan Baez has dedicated her life to support the causes she believes in. Seva is grateful to be one of her favorite organizations.
"Compassion and caring for people in need, that's simply a moral necessity, but it's not always easy to do. Seva makes it easy. They know how to put your donations to work in ways that truly benefit people.” Joan Baez

Singing to a sold-out audience, Joan's stellar performance touched people's hearts and souls, leaving them with a feeling of pride, and nostalgic for the social and political movements of the 60's.
Joan Baez has been a Seva supporter for many years. In 2006, she performed at Wavy Gravy's 70th birthday celebration at the Berkeley Community Theater, with a host of artists including Bob Weir & Ratdog, Mickey Hart, Mearle Saunders, Les Claypool, David Lindley and many others. In 1992, Joan and her sister Mimi Farina joined Jackson Browne, Bonnie Raitt, John Trudell, and Kenny Loggins along with many other talented musicians in support of Seva's Native American Programs at The Esalen Institute in Big Sur, CA.
Seva is grateful to Joan Baez for her long-term support!
