Colchester Arts Centre


Catherine May (soprano) and Andrew Allen (guitar) are joined by Tim Pells (guitar), Michael Allen (percussion) and Mary Pells (cello) for a performance of Joni Mitchell’s Blue album.

Blue is one of the most highly regarded albums of the past 50 years. Most of the songs have become standards and have been performed and recorded countless times. The album is however rarely performed as a whole. Every song is a gem but the striking thing about this album is the way that it makes such a strong cycle of songs. Blue is an intimate and soulful set of songs in which Joni Mitchell spoke directly about her inner thoughts, cares and conflicts. It was met with immediate success when first released in 1971 and has grown in significance over the intervening years.

Tickets £12 / £10 concessions.
