Riverside Theatres Presents A Neil Gooding Productions & Amazon Woman Enterprises Production
BLUE: THE SONGS OF JONI MITCHELL
Starring Queenie van de Zandt

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 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 at the Queensland and Melbourne Cabaret Festivals and Sydney’s Hayes Theatre, Blue: The Songs of Joni Mitchell, has continued its success touring Australia and the US. Along the way it won 3 prestigious theatre awards and a Helpmann Award nomination 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.
