Painting Joni Mitchell - Ordway Center for the Arts

  • Ordway Center for the Arts 345 Washington Street Saint Paul, MN, 55102 United States (map)

Celebrate the music of a master–the incredible Joni Mitchell–with an evening of some of her greatest works. Hailed by Rolling Stone as “One of the greatest songwriters ever” and a self-described “painter derailed by circumstance,” Joni’s music paints social and environmental issues using a poetic style as well as addressing the universal feelings of romantic longing, loss, disillusion, and joy.

A nine-time Grammy award winner, along with seven other nominations, Ms. Mitchell’s music blazed new trails in the industry with her unique open tunings, alternative harmonic structure, and lyrical styling that touches the hearts of all who hear it. Her songs have been recorded by a diverse collection of artists, including: Prince, Annie Lennox, K.D Lang, Elvis Costello, Cassandra Wilson, James Taylor, and Bjork.

Joining producer, pianist, and vocalist Lori Dokken on stage will be vocalists Judi Vinar, Rachel Holder Hennig, and Jacy Smith along with Pete Hennig on drums, Jeff Bailey on bass, and Dan Caton on guitar.
