Janis Lyn Joplin was an American singer-songwriter who first rose to fame in the late 1960s as the lead singer of the psychedelic/acid rock band Big Brother and the Holding Company, and later as a solo artist. Her first ever large scale public performance was at the Monterey Pop Festival; this led her to becoming very popular and one of the major attractions at the Woodstock Festival and the Festival Express Train Tour. Joplin was well known for her performing ability and was a multi-instrumentalist. Her fans referred to her stage presence as "electric;" at the height of her career, she was known as "The Queen of Psychedelic Soul."
