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.

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.

Celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the world premiere of Joni Mitchell's The Fiddle and the Drum, a storied collaboration that launched what has become Alberta Ballet's hallmark concept-it's signature portrait ballets.

The fruit of an intense 2-year labour of love between famed Canadian singer-songwriter, Joni Mitchell, and choreographer Jean Grand-Maître, witness what the songstress describes as "the most satisfying project of her career."

Joni Mitchell's The Fiddle and the Drum gives passionate expression to Mitchell's lifelong concern with the issues of conflict, violence and humanity's continuing devastation of the environment. Alberta Ballet dancers depict Mitchell's most famous characters from her lyrics and artwork, at times in counterpoint, abstractly illustrating our fragile hope and potential for the creation of beauty.

Singer Kimberly Ford has created "A Celebration of Joni Mitchell," a group of World Class musicians with a shared passion for Joni's music. The band includes George Friedenthal on keys; Lee Rollag on guitar; Tom Buckner on saxophone; Tom Etchart on bass, and Charles Levin on drums. They perform songs from every decade of Joni's career.

Kimberly and the band perform beautifully nuanced versions of Joni's quintessential classics, without resorting to Tribute Band-style mimicry... A true "celebration" of Mitchell's artistry. Ford has been a fan since her coming-of-age years, where she learned to sing using Mitchell’s soul-baring, 1971 “Blue” album as a primer. “Her poetry and melodies spoke to my experiences before I even had a language for them."
