Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Mimi Baez Fari a (born Margarita Mimi Baez, April 30, 1945 - July 18, 2001) was a singer-songwriter and activist, the youngest of three daughters to a Scottish mother and Mexican-American physicist Albert Baez (her next-older sister is singer and activist Joan Baez). Fari a's father, a physicist affiliated with Stanford University and MIT, moved his family frequently, due to his job assignments, working in places not just in the U.S. but internationally. She benefited from dance and music lessons, and took up the guitar, joining the sixties American folk music revival. Fari a met novelist, musician and composer Richard Fari a in 1963 at the age of 17 and married him at 18. The two collaborated on a number of influential folk albums, most notably Celebrations for a Grey Day (1965) and Reflections in a Crystal Wind (1966), both on Vanguard Records.show more
