Following sell-out performances at The Brisbane and Melbourne Cabaret Festivals and The Hayes Theatre in Sydney cabaret chanteuse Queenie van de Zandt, renowned for her artful storytelling and raw, emotive vocals, brings to you the songs, stories and art of the musical legend that is Joni Mitchell.
Renaissance woman, painter and poet, Mitchell created a soundtrack for the Woodstock generation.
In BLUE: The Songs of Joni Mitchell, Queenie, along with musical director Max Lambert and a live band, explore her love of all things Joni – affectionately reinterpreting Joni Mitchell’s melancholy music, and intimately revealing the stories behind some of her most haunting songs such as A Case of You, Both Sides Now and Little Green.
‘Joni is my favourite singer/songwriter and I’ve been wanting to do a show about her and her music for some time. She gave a daughter up for adoption early in her career and her music was so influenced by this experience. Having recently given birth to a daughter, it felt like a perfect time to explore this mother and daughter relationship and the effect that becoming a parent has on your creativity.’ – Queenie van de Zandt.Flyer
