Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Brandi Carlile will perform Joni‘s album Blue during her Walt Disney Concert Hall debut in Los Angeles on October 14. Carlile’s one-time special concert event has been dubbed “Songs Are Like Tattoos.”

Here’s what Brandi had to say about the upcoming show:

“Blue might very well be the best album ever made. I feel the need to play this masterpiece in its entirety so that I can honor Joni Mitchell and the way this album brought me into myself, but also so that I can hear it live too! My soul will be listening alongside yours.

If Joni is right and “songs are like tattoos,” then these songs are an indelible part of our collective story and coming of age. ‘Part of you pours out of me in these lines from time to time.’ Let’s do Blue. Hearts on sleeves and voices raised. Let’s do this one for Joni.” More information here.

Producer and bassist, Scott Petito assembles a world class ensemble, with some of the most well-respected musicians working today, to interpret the timeless music of the genius from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. More information here.

Joni's Soul - October 11 8pm at The Bulls Head, 373 Lonsdale Road, Barnes, London SW13 9PY. Tel: 020 8876 5241 £14/£16

Joni's Soul is a collaboration between "from-the-heart" singer Gina Foster and former longtime Van Morrison guitarist Ronnie Johnson, collaborating with some of UK's finest players with a shared love for an artist they consider unquestionably 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 always stunning performance of Both Sides Now - it’s through songs like these that the band explore the unique songwriting and gift of performance Joni Mitchell 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' illustrates their well-defined, warm interpretations of some of the finest songwriting and performance of the twentieth century.

Tuesday, Sept. 24 at 7 p.m. at Richmond Memorial Library

Join musician Leah Zicari for a free concert dedicated to the music of Joni Mitchell. The impact of music in our lives plays a huge role in "Southernmost."

One character in particular -- Bell -- finds solace in the music of Joni Mitchell, such as the tune with the same title as Mitchell's debut concept album "Song to a Seagull." (This is reflected in the name of the complex of rental cottages owned by Bell.) "All I Want" is a number from Mitchell's fourth studio album released in 1971, "Blue," and House cites the song as central to Bell's character and the album itself as playing a pivotal role in his book. 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.
