Folk, Piano. Without a doubt, Joni Mitchell’s BLUE is one of the most iconic albums of all time—and here it is played from beginning to end in the original keys by Broadway star Meredith Kaye Clarke. “Clark is a masterful performer and she has an amazing voice” (broadwayworld.com). Clark’s live version first premiered at Portland Center Stage with sold out performances—her “openness and happiness on the stage is pure delight, the joy and empathy she has in and for Mitchell’s work coming out in every note” (Edge Media Network). Don’t miss this special dedication to one remarkable performer by another. meridethkayeclark.com
