richard and mimi farina

Mimi and Richard Farina had effortless Folk style. Mimi, like her sister Joan Baez, was involved in the Folk scene. As a teenager she met Richard Farina, a writer and musician. They married and collaborated on a few Folk albums until his untimely death in a Motorcycle crash a few years later. If he would have survived, some critics think he may have given Bob Dylan a run for his money.
