Joni Mitchell: Ballads and Backstories

Dizzy's, 1717 Morena Blvd, San Diego

Hello friends, Fall is here and to celebrate the season and Joni Mitchell's 79th birthday (November 7, 1943) we have arranged a special concert entitled: Ballads and Backstories; The musical artistry of Joni Mitchell.

Throughout the summer Dave and I did a series of private house concerts. We enjoyed the intimacy and the living room casualness of performing as a duo, allowing us to give the backstories on many of her songs we performed and offering the audience a greater appreciation of her artistry. It was a resounding success, and now we've decided to bring this same show to a public venue on November 13th.

We'd love for you to join us! Robin & Dave

In a world full of imitative vocalists there are precious few artists that find their own unique sound, and fewer still who can consistently touch everyone in the audience on a profound level.”
