The three piece group Shadows and Light return to Whale Theatre with their captivating show on the iconic singer – songwriter Joni Mitchell. Stunning interpretations of her music are played by vocalist Maura Vambeck, Dave Mulligan on guitar and Paul Enright on keyboard.
The show features songs from the huge Joni repertoire, including classics from the landmark ‘Blue’ album, along with some of the lesser known numbers like Hejira, Secret Place and Hissing of Summer Lawns.
Their hypnotic performance of the lyrics and life of Joni is truly special, bringing you Joan Anderson, the poet, artist and mother.
If you are a Joni Mitchell fan, you will love Shadows and Light, but if you don’t know much about Mitchell, you will soon be a fan due to this band’s passionate and informative take on her music combined with great musicianship and vocals to die for! ~ Damien Murray – Belfast Telegraph, U105 and Belfast 89FM
An unquestionable highlight of this year’s Out to Lunch was the performance of Joni Mitchell material by Dublin based Shadows and Light. A sold out Black Box was held enthralled for over two hours by Joni Mitchell’s wonderful songs and the audience rose to their feet at the end in appreciation. ~ Sean Kelly, Director of the Out to Lunch Festival, Belfast.
