This loving tribute concert is dedicated to showcasing some of Joni’s greatest compositions, especially from her first decade of recordings.
The ambitious undertaking of this multi-generational group of iconic Gainesville musicians features songs from Mitchell's first decade of recordings, including Song to a Seagull, Clouds, Ladies of the Canyon, Blue, For the Roses, Court and Spark, and Hejira. Of course, it takes four "Joni's" to do this, and they are Cathy DeWitt, Samara Crutchfield, and Janet and Maggie Rucker. The band includes David Beede, dulcimer, Richard Bassil, bass; Brad Bangstad, keyboard; Michael Derry, guitar; and Rob Rothschild, drums. DeWitt and Rucker also perform double duty on piano and guitar.
This concert will be a reprise of the standing-room-only show earlier in the year at the Thomas Center – but with a few surprises!
