Joni Mitchell, this has really been her year.
Now the great singer songwriter has been named Person of the Year by MusiCares, the Grammy charity. She’ll get a big tribute dinner in Los Angeles on January 29th. Joni won’t sing, but you can bet the list of superstars who want to sing her songs is long.
So who could be there? Jackson Browne, David Crosby, Graham Nash, Stephen Stills, Neil Young– at the very least. And plenty of ladies including Brandi Carlile, Bonnie Raitt, and of course, Judy Collins singing “Both Sides Now” would be great, but who knows if that can be brokered?
It’s nice to know that the Recording Academy expects an in person event at the LA Convention Center next January. We are all longing to be there, or anywhere at this point.
