Coral Egan, Yannick Rieu, Rick Haworth, Daniel Thouin and four other partners. Joni Mitchell is a unique and timeless artist. Not only does she have a career spanning half a century, but each of her albums is a world of its own. A formation made up of the cream of Quebec musicians, namely Coral Egan (voice), Yannick Rieu (saxophone) and Daniel Thouin (piano) accompanied by Rick Haworth (electric guitar), Rémi-Jean Leblanc (bass), Joana Peters (percussion) , voice), Robbie Kuster (drums) and Zachary Boileau (acoustic guitar) offers here an overview of her work where jazz, folk and pop come together in an original and relevant way. One can expect a very personal reinterpretation of River, Big Yellow Taxi, Coyote and other ones, but strongly anchored in the spirit of the musical openness that characterizes Joni Mitchell's repertoire. The songs thus become a playground for improvisation and interpretation. A retrospective that does not give in to nostalgia, but that undoubtedly fits into the present. More information here.

When I was a teenager in Israel, Joni Mitchell's music followed me through the streets of Jerusalem, Jericho and Bethlehem. I’m sixty-three now, living in France, and the songs still elude me, they still slip through my fingers.

This concert has been maturing for a long time. Together with Matthieu Beaudin (electronic accordion) and Jules Lefrançois (tuba and drums), fresh arrangements emerged; 3-voice harmonies flourished. I also share stories on how, in the 70’s, Joni’s music penetrated my heart in the Middle East. More information here.

This year's event is in benefit to "Our Brother's Keeper" Homeless Shelter. In addition to live music, there will be raffles, 50/50 drawings and a Silent Auction, PLUS Cranker's is donating 10% of all sales during the event! I hope to see you at the event!

My name is Jan Foote, I'm a composer of experimental classical music and I'm doing a PhD at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.

I recently wrote a new piece called Echoes of Joni, which is a 40-minute work of experimental music composed for Attica Ensamble, a Mexican ensemble of amplified classical music.

The piece that doesn't sound much like Joni's music, but her songs permeate the entire piece, albeit in a rather hidden way. I was particularly inspired by the albums, Hejira, Hissing of the Summer Lawns and Don Juan's Reckless Daughter.

I took the idea of travel as a concept from Hejira as well, but instead of telling stories of travel, I tried to compose a continually changing landscape of ambient sound.

Echoes of Joni will be premiered online as part of the Fonoteca Nacional's 'Contigo en la distancia' series on the 11th December at 13:00 Central time. It will be shown on their youtube and facebook channels. More information here.

Lauren Fox created The Evolution of Joni Mitchell, after being inspired by David Yaffe’s passionate, brilliant biography, “Reckless Daughter.” In chronological order, Lauren and David take us on a captivating and enlightening journey through Joni Mitchell’s life and music!
