“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
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 turned her autobiography into song in the 80s and reinvented herself in the 90s. Court and Spark – the Joni Mitchell Songbook 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 The Hissing of Summer Lawns, Hejira, Mingus and Turbulent Indigo
