Court and Spark: The Joni Mitchell Songbook
Share:

Singer, songwriter, painter, poet, activist and voice of a generation, Joni Mitchell is an essential part of the soundtrack to the twentieth-century. She grew up with folk music in the 60’s, she railed against injustice in the 70’s – she turned her autobiography into song in the 80’s and reinvented herself in the 90’s.

Court and Spark: The Joni Mitchell Songbook, brings together five of the North West’s most experienced musicians to celebrate the kaleidoscopic musical world of Joni Mitchell. The band is led by the many voices of Jade Thunder– equally at home in the simple folk music melodies of the late sixties and the cool jazz sounds of Joni’s later albums. Toni Hughes is on keyboards, with Martin Byrne on bass and David Crilly on guitars. Daz Jones drives the band on drums and percussion.

The Court and Spark show will take you on a musical journey that will probably mirror your own journey through life, from Ladies of the Canyon, Clouds, For the Roses, Blue and Court and Spark, to the cool, evocative sounds of Hissing of Summer Lawns, Hejira, Mingus and Turbulent Indigo.

“Condemned to wires and hammers, strike every chord that you feel / That broken trees and elephant ivories conceal”. – Joni Mitchell, Judgement of the Moon and Stars
