Joni Reimagined

An homage to the songs of Joni Mitchell.

We are delighted to see the return of this homage to the songs of Joni Mitchell by an ensemble of world class singers and musicians with CV's to match! Following a sell-out run of two shows in the main room at Ronnie Scotts, a show at Norden Farm and other prestigious venues internationally.

Great songs are made for re-interpretation by great artists and each of these artists and musicians bring something of themselves in this show for a reimagining of favourites from Joni Mitchell‘s peerless song catalogue, featuring such songs as 'Woodstock', 'Big Yellow Taxi', 'A Case Of You', 'The River' and many more.

Ring-mastered by bandleader, arranger and bassist Stefan Redtenbacher, the project features a world class band of international musicians who have played with the likes of Bowie, Elton and Herbie Hancock, REDTENBACHER’S FUNKESTRA, a multi-million streaming band in their own right.

Both the shows and the CD feature elite vocalists who are both artists in their own right and who also share deep love for Joni’s music; vocalists such a Mim Grey (McCartney, Tom Jones, Dave Stewart), multi-million streaming, Radio 2 play-listed Jo Harman (who has duetted with Michael McDonald and Lamont Dozier) and highly regarded 'emerging artist' award nominee, Jana Varga.

Even the official Joni Mitchell website is on record as reporting ‘This collection of interpretations is REALLY good folks, and well worth a listen.’
