Past tributes and events

Do you know of a Joni-related event coming up? Email the information to us and we'll post it on the 'upcoming' page.

THE music which inspires us and drives our passions in our youth often sticks with us for life, and what better way to pay tribute to a musical hero than an homage in theatre?

Delia Olam discovered the music of Joni Mitchell as a 14 year old, and the folk legend’s music was clearly the soundtrack of her formative years, now infused with nostalgia and burnished by frequent use over the years.

Her play is a celebration of Mitchell’s life and music, told sometimes from Mitchell’s perspective, sometimes through narratives examining the parallels in Olam’s own life, and vitally, in song.

The defining sentiment is gratitude and love for the legacy of Mitchell’s vast songbook, and Olam’s warmth and genuine passion for her topic provide for an engaging experience for Mitchell fans and novices alike. More info.

A TRIBUTE TO JONI MITCHELL at The Mint in Los Angeles TUESDAY, MARCH 14th FROM 8:45-9:30pm. Advance ticket sales and reservations: $10 in advance, $15 at the door. More info.

The three piece Shadows and Light perform stunning interpretations of iconic singer–songwriter Joni Mitchell’s legendary song book, including classics from the landmark ‘Blue’ album, along with numbers like ‘Hejira’, ‘Secret Place’ and ‘Hissing of Summer Lawns’. With vocalist Maura Vambeck, Dave Mulligan on guitar and Paul Enright on keyboard, their hypnotic performance of the lyrics and life of Joni brings to vivid life Joan Anderson, the poet, artist and mother.

Für diejenigen, die Mitchell kennen, ist klar, dass dies ein besonderer Abend wird, denn es gibt nur wenige Musiker, die sich an ihre Songs heranwagen. Deshalb darf sie auch solch musikalische Größen wie Elton John, Bryan Adams, Led Zeppelin, Alanis Morisette, Sheryl Crow, Madonna, Annie Lennox, Neil Young, Robert Taylor oder Leonard Cohen zu ihren Bewunderern zählen. Jedoch wird Joni Mitchell selbst wohl nicht mehr auftreten können, nachdem sie im Frühjahr an einem Aneurysma erkrankte. More information.

Tomorrow’s Warriors is incredibly proud to mark International Women’s Day with a headline concert in the Royal Festival Hall. Our Nu Civilisation Orchestra, conducted by Peter Edwards will host a spectacular, star-studded line-up of phenomenal women performing specially-commissioned arrangements of Joni Mitchell’s modern day classic: HEJIRA.

Blending folk, jazz and pop influences, Hejira uses the Prophet Muhammad’s Hijra as a jumping-off point to tell stories of personal journeys, figuratively and literally, and this set of shimmering new arrangements from our alumni composers Cassie Kinoshi, Max de Lucia and the band’s musical director, Peter Edwards gives each of our special guests a fresh path on which to travel, with the freedom to bring their unique personalities to Mitchell’s classic songs.

A proud Bay Area native who happens to be on the short list of the greatest lyrical interpreters in jazz, Laurie Antonioli brings fresh interpretations of Joni Mitchell’s timeless music in spacious arrangements explored by a deft quintet of improvisers. As a young singer, studies with the great Nancy King in the prestigious jazz vocal program at Mt. Hood Community College in Portland stoked a fire for improvisation, and regular appearances with iconic singer Mark Murphy at his weekly gigs in Tiburon thrust Antonioli into the scene as a working professional. Since her first tour of Europe with saxophonist Pony Poindexter, she has established herself as a consummate interpreter of standards and American popular song, working with Bobby McFerrin, pianists George Cables and Richie Beirach as well as an extended relationship with tenor sax legend Joe Henderson, with whom she performed for two decades until his death in 2001. An experienced educator as well as performer, Antonioli is currently the head of the jazz vocal program at Berkeley’s California Jazz Conservatory. With a rich voice and gift for lyrical interpretation, Antonioli honors Joni Mitchell, the subject of her 2014 album Songs of Shadow, Songs of Light. More info

Gina Foster, who is probably best known for her work with the iconic group “Swing Out Sister”, is a truly gifted and impressive singer. Perhaps most familiar to those at the Club for her shows here with her friend Beverley Skeete (Rhythm Kings), Gina is renowned as one of the most soulful session vocalists around and has worked prolifically in jazz, soul, groove, pop and dance music with high profile artists including Eric Clapton, Sinead O’Connor and many more. Tonight Gina will be returning to the 606 with her band for an encore performance of “Joni’s Soul”, her acclaimed programme celebrating the life and music of iconic singer/songwriter Joni Mitchell. As she says "It's not easy to pick a set-list from such a prolific artist, with so many great songs to choose from. But so far our interpretations, with emphasis on the heart and soul, have been going down a storm! From “Hejira” to “Both Sides Now”, “Hissing of Summer Lawns”, “Coyote”, “Carey” and “Edith and the Kingpin”, it's a pleasure to hear these great songs played live and a special pleasure to perform them." And she has put together a terrific band to help accomplish that task, with Graham Harvey on piano and keyboards, Ronnie Johnson along with son Patrick Johnson on guitars, Steve Pearce on bass and Ian Thomas on drums. This promises to be a very special night indeed. Booking recommended.

Many New York cabaret performers have tackled the songbook of the iconic Joni Mitchell, but few have put the kind of transformative twist on it the way Remy Block did when she performed On a Lonely Road: Travelin' with Joni between 2014-2015 at Don't Tell Mama and The Duplex. Block's tribute to the legendary pop singer/songwriter was a personal exploration of a young woman's life as a seeker, a lover, and an artist, with Mitchell's tunes serving as the "sacred text and rough guide" for her journey.

Now, Remy Block is bringing a revised version of On a Lonely Road: Travelin' with Joni to PANGEA (178 2nd Avenue, between 11th and 12th Streets) on December 8 at 7 pm. Tickets are $20 online and $25 at the door (cash only) with a $20 food/drink minimum. For reservations, go here.

"Hey Everybody -- I am beyond excited to invite all of you to this show coming up on December 7.

Mark this event down on your calendars, and visit this page for updates."

$10 at the door. Come for dinner and stay for a show! Reserve a table for dinner or the show today by calling 501-244-9660.
