It’s just like book club but with albums! With new advances in technology, the way we consume music through our devices, apps and on demand streaming services like Pandora, Spotify and iTunes is making the idea of the “album” as an art form extinct. Get together with other music enthusiasts on Tuesday nights to discuss some of the greatest records of all-time! Listen to the album beforehand and then come prepared to discuss. This event will feature Joni Mitchell: Blue

We have decided to continue with Record Club in virtual format using the ZOOM app. When you register you will be provided the meeting link to join the conversation. More information here.

Come celebrate Joni’s 77th birthday with some of her biggest fans! Joni’s music and art has touched the lives of so many. Doors open at 6:00pm, show starts at 6:30.

This is our 4th year doing the tribute, but our first time not welcoming any guest musicians to the stage. This decision was made due to the current covid-19 restrictions, and wanting to keep everyone safe. We will be performing in The Sanctuary at 75 Stutson street. This space is stunning, with its 30' high ceiling, stained glass windows and tri-level stage, amazing natural sound qualities including a grand piano. The venue will be operating at half capacity in observance of the CDC standards in addressing the pandemic, so seating is limited. Masks will be required at all times when not seated, and social distancing will be in effect. More information here.

Just in time for her birthday, we are very proud to present you with The Joni Project, and it premieres this Friday, November 6 at noon EST on WFUV.

Now, asking artists to cover a Joni Mitchell song throws a daunting challenge their way. On top of the complexity of her work, to pay tribute to Joni is to honor her art, and a life spent making it. With that request, we also invited artists to discuss the threads and reach of Joni’s greatness, both as a relatable inspiration and a creative enigma. So in The Joni Project, you’ll hear them answer that call in words and song.

Another challenge is life in a pandemic, so it’s with extra gratitude that we thank the 10 artists whose talent and heart you’ll hear. Some sounds are from the days of in-person shows and some come from artists’ homes, but bringing us all together is Joni Mitchell.

If you can't join in and listen on Friday, November 6 at noon, The Joni Project will also air on WFUV on Saturday, November 7 (Joni's birthday) at 3 p.m. and Sunday, November 8 at 8 p.m., and will be archived online following the premiere. More information here.

Two Canadian folk music icons that changed the course of musical history on the world scene: one, a prairie girl with small town roots; the other from the Jewish community in Montreal. Both artists had a lot to say and an abundance of extraordinary talent. Emerging from the folk music renaissance of the early 1960’s as solo artists armed primarily with their voices and acoustic guitars, how did they influence each other? What is their legacy?

"Vocalist Robin Adler and her husband, guitarist-producer Dave Blackburn, have made the music of Joni Mitchell their special project for the past thirteen years, playing to packed audiences. Reaching across the 40+ years of Mitchell’s extraordinary career, Robin and Dave have performed six of Joni’s albums to date and released two CDs of their own (Safaris to the Heart (2010) and Hejira Live (2014). 'Robin and the Mutts don’t just “cover” Mitchell’s music – they inhabit it.'"– Robert Bush/San Diego Reader
