Joni won her 10th Grammy in last night's ceremony in Los Angeles - 11th if you include her Lifetime Achievement Award. She won Best Folk Album for the 2023 release of "At Newport".

Joni won her first Grammy in 1970, but her first actual singing appearance on the awards show didn’t take place until last night, as she sang “Both Sides Now” - done “Joni Jam”-style, with Joni seated on a comfortable-looking throne with her recent trademark cane, surrounded by similarly seated all-star accompanists.

Due to overwhelming demand, a second Hollywood Bowl show has been added for October 20th. The only way to get access to the artist pre-sale code is if you sign up for Joni's email list. Tickets go on-sale Thursday, Feb. 1 at 10am PT. Get on the list here.

The legendary Joni Mitchell will perform her first Los Angeles headlining show in over 24 years at the Hollywood Bowl on Saturday, October 19 – joined by the Joni Jam. Pre-sales start tomorrow at 10 a.m. with password JJAM24. Tickets go on sale to the public Friday, February 2 at 10 a.m.

Joni will make her Grammy performance debut at the 2024 Grammy Awards, set for Sunday Feb. 4 at Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles. It's surprising that she has never performed on Music's Biggest Night because she has been a Grammy fixture for decades. She won her first of nine competitive Grammys in 1970. In addition, she received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Recording Academy in 2002.

Joni is nominated for best folk album for Joni Mitchell at Newport [Live]. She won her first Grammy 54 years ago in a folk category (best folk performance) for Clouds.
- Paul Grein.

‘Hejira’ is a 7-piece band set up to celebrate and honour the masterpiece works of Joni Mitchell, mostly from the late ‘70s. Having released the albums ‘The Hissing of Summer Lawns’, ‘Hejira’, ‘Don Juan’s Reckless Daughter’ and ‘Mingus’ (regarded as her ‘jazz period’), Joni then toured briefly with a band formed from the crème de la crème of contemporaneous jazz musicians (Metheny, Mays, Brecker, Pastorius and Alias). The tour was recorded, producing the outstanding live album, ‘Shadows And Light’; it is from this album that the band Hejira is drawing the body of its repertoire. Comprising highly experienced jazz musicians, this band is fronted by the brilliant Hattie Whitehead who not only has in her own way - assimilated the poise, power and beauty of Joni’s vocals, but also plays guitar with Joni’s stylistic mannerisms.
