THIS FLIGHT TONIGHT: SONGS OF JONI MITCHELL

October 17 @ 12:00 amOctober 28 @ 12:00 am

20 – 39

Hot on the heels of last year’s sold-out tribute to Leonard Cohen, Bear & Co. brings back the team to pay joyous homage to another Canadian giant. Skate away with four singers as they celebrate the soaring vocals, incisive vision, humour, wit, and bracing singularity of this uncompromising artist, whose painter’s hand is ever-present in her music. Passing around even more instruments than last year, Pierre Brault, Rachel Eugster, Robin Guy, and Scott Richardson—directed by Eleanor Crowder—soar over Mitchell’s sensuous landscape. This Fight Tonight: Songs of Joni Mitchell carries you from her pencil sketch of the joys of early “Chelsea Morning” to her passionate “Blue” heart. Her words underscore her Canadian home while her melodies land you at the transnational hub of her music making.
And once again, Bear invites local choirs to join in on the chorus of two songs (bearandcompanytheatre@gmail.com).
