Queenie van de Zandt in BLUE: The Songs Of Joni Mitchell
Writers: Queenie van de Zandt & Max Lambert
Musical Director: Max Lambert
After rave reviews and sell-out shows at the Queensland Cabaret Festival, the Melbourne Cabaret Festival and Sydney's Hayes Theatre, cabaret chanteuse Queenie van de Zandt will be touring her new show around Australia and the USA in 2018.
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.
