“When the dust settles, Joni Mitchell may stand as the most important and influential female recording artist of the late 20th century.” Allmusic.com
They paved paradise, and put up a parking lot…
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 ’60s, she railed against injustice in the ’70s, she put feelings into song in the ’80s and reinvented herself in the ’90s. Joni Mitchell continues to gather accolades, including nine Grammy awards, entry to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Canada’s highest civilian honour, the Companion of the Order of Canada. Meanwhile, the depth and imagination of this heart-on-sleeve songwriter has continued to inspire artists as diverse as Prince, Madonna, James Taylor, Herbie Hancock and Bjork.
This July, five unique Australian voices will come together to express just how much this songwriting legend means to them in Both Sides Now – Celebrating the Songs of Joni Mitchell. It is a powerful line-up – Kate Miller-Heidke, Ella Hooper, Wendy Matthews, Kristin Berardi and Rachel Gaudry, backed by an outstanding twelve piece band, live on the stages of the Sydney Opera House, Queensland Performing Arts Centre and Arts Centre Melbourne. Audiences can look forward to all those unforgettable songs – “Big Yellow Taxi”, “Both Sides Now”, “Blue”, “Woodstock”, “Circle Game”, “A Case Of You” – songs that have become part of our lives.
Both Sides Now is a concert not just for Joni fans but for anyone who loves real music, sung from the heart.
