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).

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.
