We were all very impressed when JK Jones did a few Joni Mitchell songs at our Songwriters of Canada show recently, so we invited her to come do a full tribute show. JK will be covering songs from Joni’s Song to a Seagull, Blue, Court and Spark, Hejira, Clouds and For the Roses. This rare event will feature acclaimed song-writer Jay Asher on piano for Joni's "Blue Boy".

"JK Jones is a rare artist in today’s music world who honors her influences, not through imitation, but through the musical creation of a transcendent pathway that reaches into soul of the song and delivers into the present. Her tribute to Joni Mitchell is vibrant, passionate, and magical in its depth, dimension and the beauty she helps us rediscover in one of our most enigmatic and legendary artists. Her original songs bring alive the passing of the artistic fire she holds holy and obviously loves." -Terry Paul Rowland

‘Hejira’ is a 7-piece band set up to celebrate and honour the masterpiece works of Joni Mitchell, mostly from the late ‘70s. Having released the albums ‘The Hissing of Summer Lawns’, ‘Hejira’, ‘Don Juan’s Reckless Daughter’ and ‘Mingus’ (regarded as her ‘jazz period’), Joni then toured briefly with a band formed from the crème de la crème of contemporaneous jazz musicians (Metheny, Mays, Brecker, Pastorius and Alias). The tour was recorded, producing the outstanding live album, ‘Shadows And Light’; it is from this album that the band Hejira is drawing the body of its repertoire. Comprising highly experienced jazz musicians, this band is fronted by the brilliant Hattie Whitehead who not only has in her own way - assimilated the poise, power and beauty of Joni’s vocals, but also plays guitar with Joni’s stylistic mannerisms.

On her 80th birthday, Roundhouse and Lail Arad announce a celebration of Joni Mitchell; one of the most highly regarded and influential singer-songwriters of the 20th century as part of In The Round Festival. One of the first women in modern rock to achieve enviable longevity and critical recognition, Mitchell has been a major inspiration to music's biggest names including Bob Dylan, Prince, Donna Summers, Bjork, James Blake and Lana Del Rey.

Frequently confessional, sometimes obscure, always literate and musically adventurous, she has created one of the most striking bodies of work in the popular music of the last 6 decades.

Hosted by Cerys Matthews, a stellar line up of artists join us for this special intimate evening of stripped back performances set on the circular In The Round stage. Covering some of Joni's best work are Emeli Sandé, Vashti Bunyan, Lail Arad, Sam Amidon, Kate Stables (This Is The Kit) and Eska. More information here

Unfortunately, the Canadian pop icon JONI MITCHELL is far too little known in this country despite being listed by the legendary “Rolling Stone” magazine at number 9 of the 100 best singer/songwriters of all time. We are more familiar with her top hits “This Flight Tonight”, “Big Yellow Taxi”, “Woodstock”, “My Secret Place” and “Both Sides Now”, which are often not associated with her.

With her four excellent musicians, the Stuttgart singer Birgitta Menzer presents all of the artist's favorite songs, and the listener can experience in a magnificent way what it means when Joni Mitchell says about herself:

“I'm painting with words and music”. More information here
