Both Sides Now Celebrates Heart And Soul Of Joni Mitchell With Concert Tribute Of Iconic Music
NYC-based singer Hannah Reimann to honor Mitchell with vibrant and heartfelt concert performances at PANGEA NYC
By: Hannah Reimann Music
Both Sides Now features Reimann as playwright, lead vocalist, lead pianist and performing dulcimer with guest instrumentalist Michele Temple (of Pere Ubu) taking on guitar and backing vocals. Expanding on Reimann's previous one-woman shows and multiple collaborations with Temple, the duo will present a program focused on Mitchell's classic singles, including:
· "Court and Spark"
· "Big Yellow Taxi"
· "A Case of You"
· "That Song About the Midway"
· "Cold Blue Steel and Sweet Fire"
· "Both Sides Now"
Based on the direction of longtime collaborator Austin Pendleton (recently seen in Broadway's Choir Boy) and reimagined with readings of prose from David Yaffes' bestseller, Reckless Daughter: A Portrait of Joni Mitchell, Reimann will present Mitchell's music in a deeply personal context. Inspiration for this loving tribute came from Reimann's experience in 2010 as an end-of-life caregiver for her dementia-stricken father. Listeners are invited to follow Reimann's growth as an artist, a daughter and a human, as she looked to Joni Mitchell's work for hope and guidance.
Tickets for Both Sides Now are $20 ONLINE (https://www.brownpapertickets.com/
