Joni and me
Celebrating the Magical Music of Joni Mitchell with Joanna Eden and her group
Joanna Eden "the UK's answer to Diana Krall and Nora Jones", comes to the Crazy Coqs with this celebration of the life and music of iconic US singer/song writer Joni Mitchell.
Starting as a finger-picking folkie and winding up as a jazz-savvy experimentalist, Joni Mitchell has brought a sharp eye, light touch and an agile voice to her songs, often dissecting her romances and skewered myopic governments.
These early songs, "Both Sides Now" "Eastern Rain" "The Circle Game" & "Clouds" have become standards. Mitchell's unique style offered a bit of philosophy; unafraid of posting points of personal romantic affairs. She enjoyed a hit single: "Big Yellow Taxi". Then followed the acclaimed album "Blue", featuring "Carey," "My Old Man," and "The Last Time I Saw Richard", illustrating the joys and woes of romantic relationships.
In 1997 Mitchell was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. A lifetime of smoking put a deep mark on Mitchell's voice, but Mitchell repeatedly and adamantly expressed no regrets about the rocky course she set. "I would do it all over again in a minute for the musical education."
