Earth Day with Joni Mitchell Print-ready version
April 10, 2005

Recording and Performing Artist, Activist

An innovative and original songwriter, singer, musician, poet and painter, Mitchell is regarded as one of the great formative influences on contemporary popular music. A love of nature has been a recurring theme in Mitchell's music, most notably in her hit proto-environmental song, "Big Yellow Taxi," which was released in the spring of 1970 while the first Earth Day protests were being held across the United States. In 2004 she released "The Beginning of Survival" - a collection of her "social commentary" music from the 1980s and 90s that features strong environmental themes. Join us for Earth Day with Mitchell as she discusses these recordings and shares her unique perspectives on art, music, philosophy, politics, commerce and the environment.
