2018 fylte Joni Mitchell 75 år, og det er drøyt 50 år siden debutalbumet hennes kom ut.

For å markere dette satte Anja Lauvdal sammen en storslått orkester for å hylle den ikoniske artisten, dette førte til to utsolgte konserter i Den Norske Opera & Ballett under Oslo Jazzfestival, før det ble fulgt opp med utsolgte konserter både på Kongsberg Jazzfestival og Maijazz for å nevne noen.

De magiske øyeblikkene som vi husker fra disse konsertene, er det nå på tide å dele med flere når noen av Norges mest spennende musikere hyller den nå 76-årige legenden Joni Mitchell på Sentrum Scene!

UConn is looking at Joni Mitchell from both sides now. The legendary singer/songwriter is the subject of a daylong virtual conference at the University of Connecticut April 9.

The event is structured around the 50th anniversary of her “Blue” album, renowned not just for Mitchell’s arresting vocal style and songwriting craft but for its sparse and unusual acoustic instrumentation which includes a dulcimer as well as acoustic guitar and piano.

The event’s organizer, Peter Kaminsky is a professor of Music Theory at UConn. “I’ll be 68 in May, and I grew up listening to her music,” he says. “In high school, her albums blew my mind. Now, she’s had a number of interviews lately, and released a five-volume archive of her music, so it’s kind of a Joni moment.

“This is an academic conference, with cutting-edge work on Joni Mitchell from scholars, but it will also have appeal for Baby Boomers.”
