We were all very impressed when JK Jones did a few Joni Mitchell songs at our Songwriters of Canada show recently, so we invited her to come do a full tribute show. JK will be covering songs from Joni’s Song to a Seagull, Blue, Court and Spark, Hejira, Clouds and For the Roses. This rare event will feature acclaimed song-writer Jay Asher on piano for Joni's "Blue Boy".

"JK Jones is a rare artist in today’s music world who honors her influences, not through imitation, but through the musical creation of a transcendent pathway that reaches into soul of the song and delivers into the present. Her tribute to Joni Mitchell is vibrant, passionate, and magical in its depth, dimension and the beauty she helps us rediscover in one of our most enigmatic and legendary artists. Her original songs bring alive the passing of the artistic fire she holds holy and obviously loves." -Terry Paul Rowland

Unfortunately, the Canadian pop icon JONI MITCHELL is far too little known in this country despite being listed by the legendary “Rolling Stone” magazine at number 9 of the 100 best singer/songwriters of all time. We are more familiar with her top hits “This Flight Tonight”, “Big Yellow Taxi”, “Woodstock”, “My Secret Place” and “Both Sides Now”, which are often not associated with her.

With her four excellent musicians, the Stuttgart singer Birgitta Menzer presents all of the artist's favorite songs, and the listener can experience in a magnificent way what it means when Joni Mitchell says about herself:

“I'm painting with words and music”. More information here

In what is an unforgettable celebration of her music rather than a typical “tribute” show THIS IS JONI offers something for everyone, and not just for solid fans of Joni Mitchell’s extensive musical history.

Written and performed by Melbourne singer/song writer, Lauren Elizabeth, and her 6-piece band, the audience will be taken through an exploration of memorable songs from the legendary singer/songwriter, who defined a generation through her music. It is impossible to categorize Joni’s sound, as she explored so many genres, and this show pays homage to them all. The show has been performed throughout Australia for the past 7 years to sold-out audiences, and it’s very exciting to be performing again at MEMO Music Hall. More information here

The Joni Project formed as a tribute in sound and spirit to Joni Mitchell, one of music’s greatest and most innovative artists. They are quite simply the finest tribute to Joni on the scene today. From the deep folk roots of her musical beginnings, Joni Mitchell’s music has evolved over the years to include elements of funk, rock and the full palette of harmonic colors embodied by modern jazz. Her innovative guitar tunings and brilliantly original chord progressions were paired with beautifully crafted melodies adorned by lyrics of unmatched poetic profundity to create some of the most powerfully enduring and well-loved songs of all time.

The Joni Project is fronted by the remarkable multi-instrumentalist and singer Katie Pearlman. She impressively plays Joni’s songs in their original open guitar tunings. Katie is also known throughout the northeast as a singer/songwriter, as well as for being half of the duo The Grateful Girls, an acoustic tribute to The Grateful Dead. The Project also includes jazz and jam band mainstays Dave Berg on guitar, Dan Ehrlich on bass, Alan Lerner on drums, Mark Mancini on keyboards, Steve Finklestein on percussion, Premik Russell Tubbs on saxophone and flute, and Victoria Faiella on background vocals.

Collectively, they’ve performed with members of the Grateful Dead, The Band, The Doors, the Neville Brothers, and many others. Together they bring fresh interpretation to Joni’s legendary tunes from their many eras and genres – particularly from the time of her stunning and dynamic collaboration with Jaco Pastorius, Pat Metheny and Michael Brecker.

Unfortunately, the Canadian pop icon JONI MITCHELL is far too little known in this country despite being listed by the legendary “Rolling Stone” magazine at number 9 of the 100 best singer/songwriters of all time. We are more familiar with her top hits “This Flight Tonight”, “Big Yellow Taxi”, “Woodstock”, “My Secret Place” and “Both Sides Now”, which are often not associated with her.

With her four excellent musicians, the Stuttgart singer Birgitta Menzer presents all of the artist's favorite songs, and the listener can experience in a magnificent way what it means when Joni Mitchell says about herself:

“I'm painting with words and music”. More information here
