The Bluffton Town Hall Concert Series is excited to bring Don Juan’s Reckless Daughter; a tribute to Joni Mitchell to the third floor of the Bluffton Town Hall, 154 N. Main St.
Anyone who enjoys jazz and/or complex poetic lyrical storytelling is sure to enjoy this show on January 26 at 7 pm.
Fifty years ago Joni Mitchell produced her first hit record, which included “Both Sides Now,” of Rolling Stone’s Best Songs list. That same year, a baby was born to parents who worked at a Catholic hospital where the nuns loved Joni Mitchell, and often sang her songs when they babysat. That little girl was Wendy Chappell-Dick, who continued to be steeped in Joni’s music throughout her life. On Saturday January 26, Wendy will finally have a chance to perform Joni Mitchell to her heart’s content, in the company of three fine musicians: Jeffrey Yoder (guitar), Lucas Harnish (keyboard), and Dayton Fandray (bass), who have stretched and risen to the challenge of the complexity of Mitchell’s compositions. Together, their set will trace the arch of Joni’s career, but for the most part, it is her later jazz legacy that will come through in the group’s arrangements.
Admission is free, while a donation will be taken to support the musicians.
