On Saturday, Aug 3 at the Side Door in St. Pete, members of critic and audience favorite The Florida Björkestra will convene for a closeup look at life, death, love and music through the lens of two geniuses, Joni Mitchell and Nick Drake.

We’re calling this “A Special Florida Björkestra Evening.” It has a nice ring to it. Original FL Björkestra members Daniel Navarro on bass and Dave Hamar on drums return from touring the US with Mandy Harvey, joining Jeremy Douglass, Ed Woltil and Whitney James (and a small army of special guests from the larger ensemble) for an intimate performance in Palladium’s Side Door.

We’re going to cut a deep path through all of Ed’s favorite Nick Drake songs. And then change the scenery a bit with Whitney James singing from Joni Mitchell’s vast and brilliant catalog. More information here.

Joni's Soul began as a collaboration between "from-the-heart" London soul singer Gina Foster and former longtime Van Morrison guitarist Ronnie Johnson, enlisting some of UK's very finest players with a shared love for an artist they consider to be one of the greatest singer/songwriters and guitar innovators of the last half century.

Coyote, Hejira, Edith and the Kingpin, The Hissing of Summer Lawns, A Case of You, Trouble Child, Help Me and Gina’s gorgeous version of Both Sides Now - it’s through songs like these that the band explore the unique songwriting and gift of performance Joni revealed in her iconic albums Blue, Court and Spark, Hejira, The Hissing of Summer Lawns and beyond …

Drawing on their own emotional response to these songs Joni’s Soul have looked beyond merely the faithful reproduction of the Joni Mitchell songbook to shine a light on the most soulful aspects of her words and music. The band's recently released cd 'Shades Of Joni' passionately illustrates their well-defined and warm interpretations of some of the finest songwriting and performance in music history.

Gina Foster - vocals, Ronnie Johnson and Patrick Johnson (guitars), Graham Harvey (keyboards), Steve Pearce (bass), Richard Bailey (drums). More information here.

The trumpeter’s interest in the songbooks of pop music writers started with his album of music by The Pearlfishers. For a second edition, he’s turning to one of the greatest songwriters of the past 50 years, Joni Mitchell. He’ll naturally turn those quirky melodies about romance, confusion, disillusionment and joy into new pearls for jazz audiences to enjoy. Steele’s approach is to savour the simplicity; not stray too far from the melody; look for beauty; and create tunes that glow and sparkle with warmth and affection. It’s a beautiful concept that not many musicians could pull off, but with David Milligan (piano), Calum Gourlay (bass) and Alyn Cosker (drums) he does it! More information here.

2019 marks 50 years since Joni Mitchell released her album, Clouds, which featured arguably her best loved song, Both Sides Now. Singer/songwriter Joanna Eden presents a breathtaking show in celebration of her hero, lovingly recreating Joni's masterpieces from Clouds and from her wider repertoire.

In this 'labour of love' show, audiences join Joanna on a musical journey through the myriad of ideas, textures, themes, voices and emotions of Mitchell's canon. In the 'me' part of Joni & Me, Joanna traces Joni's influences in some of her own songs, describes how she introduced multi-Grammy winner Sam Smith to Joni's songs, and how it felt to watch her now-superstar student emerging as a singer/songwriter. Joanna will be joined by musicians Lewis Andrews and Chris Allard.
