In the 1960s, Toronto developed one of the world’s most vibrant music scenes, with folk, blues and rock performers who went on to international acclaim. In this whirlwind tour of the musical culture that flourished on Yonge Street and in Yorkville through the end of the decade, Curious Minds favourite Dr. Mike Daley (The Beatles and their World; Leonard Cohen: Words and Music) will bring these legendary artists—and they world they inhabited—to thrilling new life.

Using archival video, photos and recorded music, he’ll immerse us in the sights and sounds of the historic venues where they performed and showcase the extraordinary talents of musicians like The Band, Ronnie Hawkins, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Gordon Lightfoot, Joni Mitchell and Neil Young. He’ll celebrate the world-renowned icons who got their start here in our city and the local stars whose musical talents left an enduring legacy.

This course is led by Dr. Mike Daley, a music historian and professional musician who has taught at Guelph, McMaster, Waterloo and York Universities. More information here.

The Joni Mitchell Songbook brings together a group of top-drawer musicians, led by singer Sarah Miller and keyboard player Aidan Goldstraw, whose devotion to the artist’s back catalogue shines through in performance. This is no ordinary tribute act – it’s an evening spent together, exploring the work of a musical genius.

This comprehensive survey of Joni’s career includes landmarks such as Big Yellow Taxi (her most covered song), River and A Case of You (both from the breakthrough album Blue), the radio hits of Help Me and Free Man In Paris (from double-platinum Court and Spark) and the jazz-infused stylings of In France They Kiss On Main St (The Hissing of Summer Lawns) and Coyote (Hejira). More information here.

Cantus shows off a completely different side with Covers, arranging and performing the everyday classics of our time. This year features Joni Mitchell’s acclaimed album Blue performed in its entirety — as well as songs by artists like The Beatles, Queen, Michael Jackson, and more. You won’t want to miss it!
