Happy Birthday Joni! Join us on Friday, Nov 6th for a special fundraiser celebrating the inimitable Joni Mitchell. It’s a day of music, stories and fun as we take a look at the impact and accomplishments of one of this decade’s greatest living artists. A true favorite of WPKN programmers and listeners alike, we are delighted to be dedicating the day to all things Joni, and will have special premiums including a brand new, totally unique teeshirt in her honor.

Come celebrate Joni’s 77th birthday with some of her biggest fans! Joni’s music and art has touched the lives of so many. Doors open at 6:00pm, show starts at 6:30.

This is our 4th year doing the tribute, but our first time not welcoming any guest musicians to the stage. This decision was made due to the current covid-19 restrictions, and wanting to keep everyone safe. We will be performing in The Sanctuary at 75 Stutson street. This space is stunning, with its 30' high ceiling, stained glass windows and tri-level stage, amazing natural sound qualities including a grand piano. The venue will be operating at half capacity in observance of the CDC standards in addressing the pandemic, so seating is limited. Masks will be required at all times when not seated, and social distancing will be in effect. More information here.

Kiki includes tunes from the early years of "Blue" and "Song to a Seagull," then explores Joni's jazzy side with cuts from her "Mingus" record and "Wild Things Run Fast." Enjoy classics like “Both Sides Now,” "Woodstock", "River" and “Case of You” as well as deep tracks like “Blonde in the Bleachers" and "Michael From Mountains"; then sing along to favorites like “Big Yellow Taxi”, Raised on Robbery" and “Free Man in Paris".

It’s just like book club but with albums! With new advances in technology, the way we consume music through our devices, apps and on demand streaming services like Pandora, Spotify and iTunes is making the idea of the “album” as an art form extinct. Get together with other music enthusiasts on Tuesday nights to discuss some of the greatest records of all-time! Listen to the album beforehand and then come prepared to discuss. This event will feature Joni Mitchell: Blue
