In BLUE, Queenie, renowned for her artful storytelling and raw, emotive vocals, explores the songs, stories and
art of the musical legend that is Joni Mitchell.
Renaissance woman, painter and poet, Mitchell created a soundtrack for the Woodstock generation.
"Joni is my favourite singer/songwriter and I've been wanting to do a show about her and her music for some
time," said Queenie. "She gave a daughter up for adoption early in her career and her music was so influenced
by this experience. Having given birth to a daughter myself in 2017, it felt like a perfect time to explore this
mother and daughter relationship and the effect that becoming a parent has on your creativity."
In BLUE: The Songs of Joni Mitchell, Queenie, along with award-winning musical director Max Lambert and a
live band, explores her love of all things Joni – affectionately reinterpreting Joni Mitchell's melancholy music, and
intimately revealing the stories behind some of her most haunting songs such as A Case of You, Both Sides
Now and Little Green.
Following rave reviews, and sell-out performances in 2017 at the Queensland and Melbourne Cabaret Festivals
and the Hayes Theatre in Sydney, BLUE: The Songs of Joni Mitchell, has continued its success touring Australia
and the US in 2018 with more dates set for 2019 and beyond. Along the way it has won 3 prestigious theatre
awards, as well as being nominated for the Helpmann Award for Best Cabaret Performer and the Sydney
Theatre Award for Best Cabaret Production.
BLUE: THE Songs of Joni Mitchell, is a beguiling night of melancholic songs, poetic storytelling and haunting
vocals in a perfect intimate setting.
