Great Moments in Vinyl plays Joni Mitchell
January 10, 2019 • Martyrs’ • Chicago, IL
Annie Lennox said when she heard Joni Mitchell for the first time, she thought, ‘I want to do that.’”
Prince singled out one of Joni’s records as “the last album I loved all the way through.”
Christopher Cross regarded her as a songwriter who set the bar for other songwriters “to do something better than the last time, whether it’s the next song or just the next line.”
Joni Mitchell has been an inspiration across both generations and genders. From her debut on the heels of her success as a songwriter…to her ongoing exploration of the agony and ecstasy of relationships…to her evolution into the archetypal restless artistic spirit, Joni Mitchell has defied categories and confounded expectations time and again, all the while delivering some of the most genuinely felt music ever recorded.
Great Moments in Vinyl takes the stage to celebrate the music of Joni Mitchell. We’ll perform this legendary singer/songwriter’s most popular album, Court and Spark, in its entirety, and spend time with songs from the records that preceded it as well as those that came soon after.
