"A brilliant morsel of theatrical art, flamboyantly conceived and compellingly staged." - The New York Times
JONI: A PORTRAIT IN SONG - A BIRTHDAY HAPPENING LIVE AT MASSEY HALL
Two Nights Only!
From "Both Sides Now" and "Blue" to "Court and Spark" and "Coyote," the work of Joni Mitchell continues to inspire and delight generations of listeners. Joni remains one of the world's most embraced, lauded, and prolific singer-songwriters and visionary artists. When eight-time Grammy winner Joni Mitchell was presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2002, the Grammys called Joni's music "a powerful influence on all artists who embrace diversity, imagination, and integrity." To celebrate both her artistry and upcoming 70th birthday, Luminato brings together an all-star lineup of musicians and vocalists interpreting the songs of this brilliantly original artist. Confirmed performers include: Grammy, Tony and Academy Award-winner Glen Hansard (Once); acclaimed singer/songwriter Rufus Wainwright; and jazz guitarist Bill Frisell. The complete line-up to be announced. Musical direction and arrangements provided by drummer/bandleader Brian Blade along with pianist/composer Jon Cowherd. Band to include musicians Brian Blade, Melvin Butler, Jon Cowherd, Bill Frisell, Jeff Haynes, Mark Isham, Chris Thomas and Marvin Sewell. Produced by New York-based live music producer Danny Kapilian.
