Joni Mitchell At Newport 2LP (Clear)
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. We're pleased to announce that her triumphant return will be available as AT NEWPORT on July 28th. Along with Joni, it's been produced by close collaborator Brandi Carlile, and features new liner notes by Cameron Crowe.
Joni was joined on stage at the Newport Folk Festival by a star-studded band led by Carlile, the 9x GRAMMY®-winning singer/songwriter. 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."
