Kimberly Ford Sings Joni Mitchell's Blue Album
Kimberly Ford, the veteran Santa Barbara songstress at the forefront of Joni Mitchell's wondrous songbook, sings the "Blue" album in her Monterey debut. Joni's 1971 masterpiece catapulted a then-cult folkie to an international icon overnight. The album was considered daring in its soul-baring tales of relationship triumphs and failures with tunes written about ex-lovers like Graham Nash and James Taylor. Today "Blue" sits on numerous Best Of lists and topped NPRs 150 Greatest Albums by Women.

"Blue" shaped Ford's formative ideas as a singer during her teen years in Fresno, ultimately redirecting her musical compass from light opera to Americana and Jazz. Unlike the other singer-songwriter options of the time that were more folk and pop oriented, Joni's music cut straight to the heart of my experience as a young woman during those tumultuous times, Ford says. She mapped the topography of love, loss and reflection better than anything else I was hearing in those early days."

Ford's seven-piece band, A Celebration of Joni Mitchell, is a rocking tribute to this most iconic singer-songwriter of the Woodstock generation. Modeled on Joni's tenure with Tom Scott & the L.A. Express, Kimberly and band will also play numerous selections from Joni's canon, including tunes like "Help Me," "Conversation," "Both Sides Now,"  "Free Man in Paris" and, of course, "Woodstock." The band also throws in a few you might not have heard before ...

Come hear this amazing band before its first East Coast tour in April, including a show at The Kennedy Center.

Beer and wine for sale at the concert with proceeds to benefit the Monterey Peninsula Sunrise Rotary Club.
