MANHATTAN — It's a high note for Occupy Wall Street.
Legendary folk singer Joan Baez is expected to perform at a demonstration Friday in Lower Manhattan timed to coincide with Veterans Day.
The Woodstock alumna and longtime activist, 70, will join a group of protesters in Foley Square Friday at 1 p.m., said organizer John Penley — a dose of flower power for the movement that comes on the heels of a performance by David Crosby and Graham Nash at Zuccotti Park on Tuesday afternoon.
Longtime civil rights lawyer Norman Siegel, who helped organizers get a permit for the rally after it was originally planned for Washington Square Park, called Baez an "icon" who has remained committed to social causes for decades.
"I remember Joan Baez working with Dr. King in the South. She's been a social justice activist for half a century," Siegel said. "Having her here tomorrow connects civil rights, the women's movement, the peace movement and Occupy Wall Street — and that's exciting."
Baez’s publicist would not immediately confirm her appearance.
Military veterans who support the ongoing protests are expected to attend, along with other notable guests, including Sgt. Shamar Thomas, the U.S. Marine who confronted police for allegedly battling with protesters in Times Square in a now-famous online video, Penley and Siegel added.
