On February 7, legendary singer/songwriter Joni Mitchell will be celebrated as she should, with a special theatrical event.
Mitchell, who has experienced significant medical issues over the past few years, has a far-reaching influence that comes across in many contemporary musical acts today — and she’ll be honored as such with a special one-night-only event.
Titled Joni 75, the film brings together performances by several of Mitchell’s friends and musical peers, as performed in Los Angeles in late 2018, on her 75th birthday:
