Duine de na cumadóirí amhrán is mó a bhí riamh ann í Joni Mitchell dar le Rolling Stone. Sna liricí sárfhileata aici, pléitear téamaí an ghrá - an tnúth, an cumha, an ríméad, an domlas - chomh maith le ceisteanna móra sóisialta agus timpeallachta. Cuimsíonn a stíleanna ceoil an ceol tíre fuaimiúil, ceol rithim agus gormacha, popcheol agus turgnaimh chasta snagcheoil.
Joni Mitchell has been described by Rolling Stone as ‘one of the greatest songwriters ever’. Her intensely poetic lyrics probe romantic themes of longing, joy and disillusion, as well as social and environmental concerns. Her music ranges from acoustic folk, rhythm and blues, and pop to harmonically complex jazz experiments.
Sweet Fire: The Joni Mitchell Project features the very best of Mitchell’s songs – from ‘Big Yellow Taxi’, ‘Woodstock’ and ‘Both Sides Now’ to ‘The Jungle Line’ and ‘God Must Be a Boogie Man’. Translated into exquisite Irish by poets Liam Ó Muirthile and Gabriel Rosenstock, they will be performed by singer Caitríona O’Leary. She will be accompanied by Dick Farrelly (guitars), Nick Roth (saxophone), Dave Redmond (bass) and Graham Hopkins (drums). Margaret Lonergan has created stunning screen projections of the lyrics. Produced by Liam Carson, IMRAM Irish Language Literature Festival.
