Joni Mitchell at Newport (CD)


Joni stunned the Newport Folk Festival audience last summer when she gave a surprise performance – her first in 20 years – delivering a heartfelt set filled with some of her greatest songs. Joni was joined on stage at the Newport Folk Festival by a star-studded band led by Brandi Carlile. Other performers included Carlile’s bandmates Phil and Tim Hanseroth, Wynonna Judd, Marcus Mumford, Celisse, Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig of Lucius, Taylor Goldsmith of Dawes, and more.  She delighted the audience, blending her voice with the other singers on stage on classics like Big Yellow Taxi, A Case Of You, and Both Sides Now. For good measure, she even flashed her guitar prowess, playing a solo instrumental version of Just Like This Train.
