Honoured this March 1st, 2023 with a most Prestigious U.S. Library of Congress Gershwin Prize
THANKS FOR ALL OF THE BEAUTY YOU BRING TO A TROUBLED WORLD
A Brief Tribute from Doug Draper at Niagara At Large
Posted on Niagara At Large on March 2nd, 2023
She has worn he word “legend” now for quite a long time and has often been called by other giants in the popular music field, including the late David Crosby of Byrds and Crosby, Stills & Nash fame, as one of the greatest, if not the greatest singer-songwriters of all time.
Joni Mitchell, creator of such songs as ‘Both Sides, Now’, ‘Big Yellow Taxi’, ‘The Circle Game’, ‘Woodstock’, ‘River’ and so many more, has already been honoured with almost every conceivable music award, and an Order of Canada from her home country.
Now, along with the likes of Carole King, Willie Nelson, Tony Bennett, Smokey Robinson, Billy Joel, the late great Burt Bacharach and more, she is no a winner of the U.S. Library of Congress Gershwin Prize, which is huge.
By the way, Joni Mitchell is also a great painter.
Thank You Joni, for all of the beauty and passion you have brought to a world that desperately needs it
