We didn’t know folk music could be so sexy. For years, Canadian singer Joni Mitchell has been crooning about the pitfalls of “paving paradise to put up a parking lot.” (Yup, that’s where the Counting Crows and Bob Dylan got the lyrics). Now she’s brought her folksy tunes to the Alberta Ballet to create Dancing Joni & Other Works. The performance highlights her life-long concerns about environmental neglect and humanity’s warring nature.

“As an artist creating today, quite frankly, I can see no other subject matter that is of more importance now. We need people to awaken to this reality,” said Mitchell. Dancing Joni & Other Works has just wrapped up in Calgary and will be performed at the Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium today and tomorrow, February16 – 17, 2007. Good news: the performance special will be recorded to television in high-definition and produced for CHUM/Bravo by Calgary-based Joe Media Group.
