In the week of Joni Mitchell's 75th Birthday, we celebrated her music once again at Brighton's premier award winning music venue The Brunswick. We had a great time, with a packed house and a 5 star review in The Argus.

COURT AND SPARK is a project conceived by Lucy Pickering, to reinterpret and perform some of Joni Mitchell’s finest songs from the 1970’s to 1990’s – the era that saw album releases such as Court & Spark, Hejira and Taming The Tiger. This was the era when Joni Mitchell began to look beyond her folk roots, and worked with Pat Metheny, Jaco Pastorius and Wayne Shorter. Some of her greatest songs come from these fruitful creative partnerships, and many of them make a great starting point for exploration and development; something which we are delighted to be able to share and perform.
