Back in 2009 Joni Mitchell told "LA Times Magazine" that she was considering making a tribute album to Emily Carr. So far that album hasn't materialized, but her enthusiasm for Carr has continued to evolve since then. Now she is enjoying a tribute of her own at Luminato Festival — "Joni: A Portrait in Song," billed as a "Birthday Happening" though her 70th is in November — with performances by Kathleen Edwards, Cold Specks, Herbie Hancock, Rufus Wainwright, and others. Mitchell demonstrates her abiding fascination for Carr at the two-day celebration with a new poem adapted from the writings of the legendary post-impressionist. (Mitchell also surprised the audience on the opening night by singing three songs, a rare performance not advertised before the show.)
