Joni Mitchell - At Newport 2LP (Clear Vinyl)

First Live Performance in 20 Years Captured at the 2022 Newport Folk Festival; Produced by Brandi Carlile with New Liner Notes by Cameron Crowe

Joni Mitchell stunned the Newport Folk Festival audience in the summer of 2022 when she gave a surprise performance – her first in 20 years – delivering a heartfelt set filled with some of her greatest songs. Her triumphant return is now available as the vinyl 2LP-set Joni Mitchell At Newport, produced by close collaborator Brandi Carlile and featuring new liner notes by Cameron Crowe.

Joni was joined on stage at the Newport Folk Festival by a star-studded band led by Carlile, the 9x Grammy-winning singer/songwriter. Other performers included Carlile's bandmates Phil and Tim Hanseroth, Wynonna Judd, Marcus Mumford, Celisse, Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig of Lucius, Taylor Goldsmith of Dawes, and more. She delighted the audience, blending her voice with the other singers on stage on classics like "Big Yellow Taxi," "A Case Of You," and "Both Sides Now." For good measure, she even flashed her guitar prowess, playing a solo instrumental version of "Just Like This Train."

"Mitchell emerged from the side of the stage, swaying smoothly, in fine summer-style with beret and sunglasses. Her good-natured mood instantly set the tone. This performance would be an intimate gathering of friends, not unlike the Joni Jams she'd been hosting in her own living room over the last few years of recovery. Smiling broadly, Mitchell made her surprise appearance, taking her on-stage seat alongside Carlile. Within minutes, the news had rocketed around the globe. Mitchell was back, sparkling with enthusiasm, delivering a tender and passionate set of 13 songs, ending with a joyful sing-along of ‘The Circle Game.'" - Cameron Crowe
