This concert will feature a stellar cast of some of the New York City area's finest female singer/songwriters - plus Philadelphia percussionist Cheryl Prashker - in celebration of the 40th anniversary of Joni Mitchell's landmark album, Blue. The evening will include performances of ALL the songs from Blue plus original songs inspired by Joni Mitchell. Performers will include: Meg Braun, Anna dagmar, Honor Finnegan, Sharon Goldman, Victoria Lavington, Catherine Miles, Karyn Oliver, Elisa Peimer, Cheryl Prashker, Allison Scola, Carolann Solebello and Allison Tartalia.

These 12 women, known collectively as Chicks With Dip, represent a loose affiliation of female singer/songwriters in the New York City area who enjoy each other's company and the pleasures of good conversation, good songs, and good dip. The Chicks will celebrate their tenth anniversary this year.

"The idea for the Blue show sprang up organically at a meeting," says Carolann Solebello, longtime Chick and former member of female Americana trio Red Molly. "We were discussing Joni Mitchell and what her songwriting has meant to each of us, and since we're always on the lookout for ways to collaborate, the 40th anniversary of Joni's masterpiece seemed the perfect opportunity."
