Ian Shaw and Claire Martin - Joni at 70 - the Songs of Joni Mitchell

Sage Two

This year Joni Mitchell turns 70. BBC multi award winning vocalists Ian Shaw and Claire Martin have themselves recorded many of her songs (Shaw’s 2006 ‘Drawn To All Things’, Linn Records).

Mitchell’s beautifully crafted confessionals resonate so effectively in this, now famous, duo setting from the seminal, now legendary, singer-songwriter bible ‘Blue’ to her later musings on world issues, this powerful and intimate show is not to be missed.

“Shaw captures the poetry in Joni’s songs with an eye-watering vocal range and bucketloads of soul” BBC

[Claire Martin] “One of the most intuitively musical mainstream jazz singers and classic-pop interpreters to have emerged in Britain” The Guardian
