Joni Mitchell Newport Folk Festival 2022
Yesterday, Newport Folk Festival attendees were treated to a unique
experience. For the first time in more than twenty years, Joni Mitchell
performed her whole set on stage. Prior to developing a brain
aneurysm in 2015, Joni Mitchell had already essentially stopped
performing in front of an audience. She gave her final full concert at the
end of her final tour in 2000 and only made brief cameos thereafter.
She sang with Brandi Carlile on timeless songs like "Big Yellow
Taxi" and "Both Sides Now." She resides in the living room
of her house in the Santa Barbara neighborhood.
