Singer Kimberly Ford has created "A Celebration of Joni Mitchell," a group of World Class musicians with a shared passion for Joni's music. The band includes George Friedenthal on keys; Lee Rollag on guitar; Tom Buckner on saxophone; Tom Etchart on bass, and Charles Levin on drums. They perform songs from every decade of Joni's career.

Kimberly and the band perform beautifully nuanced versions of Joni's quintessential classics, without resorting to Tribute Band-style mimicry... A true "celebration" of Mitchell's artistry. Ford has been a fan since her coming-of-age years, where she learned to sing using Mitchell’s soul-baring, 1971 “Blue” album as a primer. “Her poetry and melodies spoke to my experiences before I even had a language for them."

Natalie Hamilton makes her return to Firehouse 12 with her live performance project “The Joni Experiment", in which she explores and experiments with the compositions of the iconic singer/songwriter Joni Mitchell, with voice, guitar and piano.

Hamilton is joined on stage by 20th Annual Long Beach, CA Jazz Festival Winner, guitarist George Lesiw. The guitar and Joni tuning connoisseurs out there will be delighted in Lesiw’s multiple guitars on stage, all in original Joni Mitchell tunings.

The evening will include album selections from Joni’s expansive 40+ year career, ranging from her early folk roots (“Ladies of the Canyon”, “Clouds”, “Blue”) to her foray into jazz (“Court and Spark”, “Hejira”, “The Hissing of Summer Lawns”, “Mingus”) and her later, perhaps lesser known works (“Wild Things Run Fast”, “Chalk Mark in a Rain Storm, “Turbulent Indigo”, “Taming The Tiger”)

The audience can enjoy hearing note by note transcriptions of Joni’s compositions, combined with newly-imagined guitar and piano arrangements. In addition, sprinkled throughout the evening, will be original songs off of Natalie Hamilton’s new self-titled EP, which will be available exclusively at the show.

Please join Hamilton and Lesiw as they journey through the musical life of Joni Mitchell in what is sure to be a special evening.

The Arden Theatre in St Albert will be staging the VERY FIRST ‘Colleen Brown sings the Joni Mitchell Songbook’ Performance.

Celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the world premiere of Joni Mitchell's The Fiddle and the Drum, a storied collaboration that launched what has become Alberta Ballet's hallmark concept-it's signature portrait ballets.

The fruit of an intense 2-year labour of love between famed Canadian singer-songwriter, Joni Mitchell, and choreographer Jean Grand-Maître, witness what the songstress describes as "the most satisfying project of her career."

Joni Mitchell's The Fiddle and the Drum gives passionate expression to Mitchell's lifelong concern with the issues of conflict, violence and humanity's continuing devastation of the environment. Alberta Ballet dancers depict Mitchell's most famous characters from her lyrics and artwork, at times in counterpoint, abstractly illustrating our fragile hope and potential for the creation of beauty.
