Joni Mitchell Live At Newport To Be Officially Released

On June 24, 2022, Joni Mitchell surprised music fans at the Newport Jazz Festival with her first appearance in 20 years.

Joni was welcomed to the stage with a group called the “Joni Jam’ featuring Brandi Carlisle, Marcus Mumford and Wyonna Judd. It was Joni’s first public appearance since her brain aneurysm in 2015.

Cameron Crowe recalls, “Mitchell emerged from the side of the stage, swaying smoothly, in fine summer-style with beret and sunglasses. Her good-natured mood instantly set the tone. This performance would be an intimate gathering of friends, not unlike the Joni Jams she’d been hosting in her own living room over the last few years of recovery. Smiling broadly, Mitchell made her surprise appearance, taking her on-stage seat alongside Carlile.

“Within minutes, the news had rocketed around the globe. Mitchell was back, sparkling with enthusiasm, delivering a tender and passionate set of 13 songs, ending with a joyful sing-along of ‘The Circle Game.’”

The album will be released on June 23, 2023, one day less of a year since the performance.
