Three women, three multi-instrumentalists and singer-songwriters join forces for a unique project: the re-interpretation of Joni Mitchell’s legendary album „Blue“. For its 50th anniversary,
 they bring the album to the stage in its entirety. With 16 instruments, three-part harmonies and plenty of background stories.
Anne de Wolff, known from her collaboration with BAP or Calexico, the Dutch singer and composer Iris Romen (Tim Neuhaus, Ben Becker, Astrid North) and Hamburg’s Beatles expert and interpreter Stefanie Hempel dare to tackle the holy grail of songwriting. No album has coined the term singer-songwriter like „Blue“ has.
In its unapologetic self-reflection, loneliness and vulnerability, the album set new standards in the world of pop and, above all, opened the doors wide for the female voice and narrative.
With new interpretations and colourful instrumentations, the three musicians bring Joni’s bittersweet songs from „All I Want“, to „California“ and „River“ to the stage in all their dark and light nuances. And they also want one thing to never be forgotten: Joni Mitchell’s songs are said to be “confessional“, they are often sad and always honest. But at the same time these songs radiate with wit, spirit, childlike wisdom and poetry. 
When you need your heart torn apart and then put back together again, there is nothing quite like Joni Mitchell’s ‚Songs of Blue‘
Anne, Iris and Stefanie pay homage to the queen of songwriting.
