Court and Spark - The Joni Mitchell Songbook
“Condemned to wires and hammers, strike every chord that you feel
That broken trees and elephant ivories conceal”.
- Joni Mitchell - Judgement of the Moon and Stars
Singer, songwriter, painter, poet, activist and voice of a generation, Joni Mitchell is an essential part of the soundtrack to the twentieth-century. She grew up with folk music in the 60s, she railed against injustice in the 70s - she turned her autobiography into song in the 80s and reinvented herself in the 90s. Court and Spark – the Joni Mitchell Songbook will take you on a musical journey that will probably mirror your own journey through life, from Ladies of the Canyon , Clouds , For the Roses , Blue and Court and Spark , to the cool, evocative sounds of The Hissing of Summer Lawns , Hejira , Mingus and Turbulent Indigo .
