In what will be an unforgettable celebration of her music rather than a typical “tribute” show, ‘This is Joni’ offers something for everyone, not just for solid fans of Joni Mitchell’s extensive musical history.
Written and performed by Melbourne singer/song writer, Lauren Elizabeth, the audience will be taken through an exploration of memorable songs from the legendary singer/songwriter, who defined a generation through her music. It is impossible to categorize Joni’s sound, as she explored so many genres, and this show pays homage to them all.
Performing her many hits such as ‘Help Me’, ‘Big Yellow Taxi’, ‘Blue’ and ‘Free Man In Paris’, plus a collection of songs spanning Joni’s 40-odd year career, Lauren will perform with her outstanding 6 piece band, comprising some of Melbourne’s finest musicians and special guest vocalists.
The show will also explore the artist and painter that is Joni Mitchell and the work she has produced, dating back to the early 195o’s, right up to the present day.
‘This is Joni’ intends to tour Australia throughout 2017, followed by an extensive tour of Europe in 2018.
