In the 1960s, Toronto developed one of the world’s most vibrant music scenes, with folk, blues and rock performers who went on to international acclaim. In this whirlwind tour of the musical culture that flourished on Yonge Street and in Yorkville through the end of the decade, Curious Minds favourite Dr. Mike Daley (The Beatles and their World; Leonard Cohen: Words and Music) will bring these legendary artists—and they world they inhabited—to thrilling new life.

Using archival video, photos and recorded music, he’ll immerse us in the sights and sounds of the historic venues where they performed and showcase the extraordinary talents of musicians like The Band, Ronnie Hawkins, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Gordon Lightfoot, Joni Mitchell and Neil Young. He’ll celebrate the world-renowned icons who got their start here in our city and the local stars whose musical talents left an enduring legacy.

This course is led by Dr. Mike Daley, a music historian and professional musician who has taught at Guelph, McMaster, Waterloo and York Universities. More information here.

2019 marks 50 years since Joni Mitchell released her album, Clouds, which featured arguably her best loved song, Both Sides Now. Singer/songwriter Joanna Eden presents a breathtaking show in celebration of her hero, lovingly recreating Joni's masterpieces from Clouds and from her wider repertoire.

In this 'labour of love' show, audiences join Joanna on a musical journey through the myriad of ideas, textures, themes, voices and emotions of Mitchell's canon. In the 'me' part of Joni & Me, Joanna traces Joni's influences in some of her own songs, describes how she introduced multi-Grammy winner Sam Smith to Joni's songs, and how it felt to watch her now-superstar student emerging as a singer/songwriter. Joanna will be joined by musicians Lewis Andrews and Chris Allard.

Multi-award winning singer, Ian Shaw, fuses the words and music of two of popular music's genius giants, Joni Mitchell and the much missed David Bowie. Traversing the mammoth back catalogue of these legendary artists, this is an unmissable and highly personal journey from the endless summers of the early seventies and New York's East Village to "our own ideals" of love, hope and the presence of the darker truths of recent times. These highly charged shows promise tears, laughter...and simply great songwriting. More information here.

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.

The Joni Mitchell Songbook brings together a group of top-drawer musicians, led by singer Sarah Miller and keyboard player Aidan Goldstraw, whose devotion to the artist’s back catalogue shines through in performance. This is no ordinary tribute act – it’s an evening spent together, exploring the work of a musical genius.

This comprehensive survey of Joni’s career includes landmarks such as Big Yellow Taxi (her most covered song), River and A Case of You (both from the breakthrough album Blue), the radio hits of Help Me and Free Man In Paris (from double-platinum Court and Spark) and the jazz-infused stylings of In France They Kiss On Main St (The Hissing of Summer Lawns) and Coyote (Hejira).

Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Brandi Carlile will perform Joni‘s album Blue during her Walt Disney Concert Hall debut in Los Angeles on October 14. Carlile’s one-time special concert event has been dubbed “Songs Are Like Tattoos.”

Here’s what Brandi had to say about the upcoming show:

“Blue might very well be the best album ever made. I feel the need to play this masterpiece in its entirety so that I can honor Joni Mitchell and the way this album brought me into myself, but also so that I can hear it live too! My soul will be listening alongside yours.

If Joni is right and “songs are like tattoos,” then these songs are an indelible part of our collective story and coming of age. ‘Part of you pours out of me in these lines from time to time.’ Let’s do Blue. Hearts on sleeves and voices raised. Let’s do this one for Joni.” More information here.
