The Evolution of Joni Mitchell
Tickets are on sale Friday, September 23 at 10am. Member presale begins Wednesday, September 21 at 10am.
A concert performance by Lauren Fox, featuring commentary by Joni’s biographer, David Yaffe.
An enlightening journey through the life and songs of the Music Legend performed by acclaimed cabaret artist Lauren Fox with commentary from the Joni biography “Reckless Woman”, and accompaniment on piano, guitar and bass. Songs include: “Both Sides Now”, “Big Yellow Taxi”, “Chelsea Morning”, “Woodstock”, “The Circle Game”, “A Case of You”, and more. Former NY Times music critic Stephen Holden wrote about the show, “More Joni than Joni, Fox captures Mitchell’s literary depth and musical sensibility with profound empathy and understanding.”
From early folk to folk-rock, to jazz and pop music, Joni Mitchell continually evolved and pushed the envelope, defying critics and fans, who wanted her to stay the lithe and lovely, gentle folk faerie that they fell in love with in the 60’s. Joni is a true pioneer, blazing a trail for women in music for decades to come, by never compromising her artistry.
