Rebecca Barnard “Sings the Songs of Joni Mitchell”
Rebecca Barnard first heard Joni Mitchell in 1974. The song was CAREY and it changed her life there and then! She has been a Joni fan ever since. Rebecca has released 6 albums and there is a subtle hint of Joni’s influence in each one.
Teaming up with Rebecca is Peter Farnan (Boom Crash Opera ) who also heard Joni at around the same time and his life was changed too. He immediately learned her intricate tuning and unique style of guitar and piano playing.
They have put together their favourite Joni Mitchell songs covering a broad range from each era of this extraordinary artist’s career and have been performing the songs of Joni all over Victoria, including the Arts Centre, to great acclaim.
I am so glad to be able to put Rebecca Barnard “Sings the Songs of Joni Mitchell” on at APPL, having discovered that we had some 58 friends and acquaintances in common on Farcebook and after the usual going and froing with the calendars we were able to find a date this year.
If you have heard Rebecca sing you will know why I am happy that we were able to book her and if you haven’t ( how did you miss her????) you had better book fast and rectify that egregious oversight
( I have always wanted to use egregious in one of these things)
