Together they play eighteen instruments, creating modern variations on themes by Joni Mitchell.  For those that don’t know, Joni Mitchell is one of the most influential female recording artists of the late 20th century. She often featured social and environmental issues in her music. Mitchell’s music stands the test of time and is once again the voice of a generation. Some examples include the heartbreak of a failed love affair in “River”, the fear of imminent ecological disaster in “Big Yellow Taxi”, and the promise of a generation gathering to ‘get back to the garden’ in “Woodstock” are topics that resound as heavily today as they did fifty years ago. Circle Game runs from January 12th to February 9th, 2019. Tickets are available online at The Firehall Centre with several Pay What You Can Performances on Wednesdays at 1:00 pm.
