Kris Kristofferson is getting by with a little help from his friends: Last month, the singer-actor wrapped up a string of shows with Merle Haggard, and tonight he plays the last of three East Coast dates with Joan Baez, who is in the middle of her own fall tour. Given each artist’s place in the folk-music firmament—not to mention the general tenor of world events at the moment—you can probably expect to hear plenty of the old movement-fomenting stuff here. But both Kristofferson and Baez have released strong records in recent years. Don’t tune out during the new ones.
