Joni Mitchell's BLUE

Joni Mitchell's BLUE, one of the most iconic albums of all time, 
played from beginning to end.

Sunday, August 6, 2023
Resound NW

Portland, OR 97201
$30 per person
In an unforgettable evening of music, Merideth Kaye Clark performs the entire Blue album by Joni Mitchell, the groundbreaking apex for the singer-songwriter released in 1971. 

Sung in the original keys and arrangements, Merideth Kaye Clark shares the full emotion and power of these legendary songs, including “Case Of You” and “River” and the title song “Blue.” Joined by pianist Mont Chris Hubbard. 

MERIDETH KAYE CLARK performed Elphaba in the First National Tour of Wicked. She has played definitive leading theatrical roles nationwide, such as Eva Perón in Evita and Nancy in Oliver!, and has originated roles in two off-Broadway musicals. Clark is a sought-after concert artist described as “plain astonishing” and “a masterful performer” with “powerhouse pipes.” She is a multi-instrumentalist and plays anything with strings, most notably the guitar, dulcimer and viola. Her solo album Young Stellar Object garnered critical praise from New York theater reviewers and the studio recording of her BLUE concert was successfully funded on Kickstarter in only four days.

"I think SoulSinging is superb and Daniel is a complete delight as a teacher. I’m happy to report that this class was even better than I had hoped it would be. The instructor, Daniel, made me feel very welcome from the minute I walked in the door and the sense of community was very apparent as everyone seemed genuinely glad to have me there. I loved the warm up and the round of singing games that were played at the beginning of class. Everyone participated and it was a blast. Daniel has a talent for picking the correct song for your voice so you actually feel comfortable. The entire group is extra warm and supportive so that anyone will feel successful."
