Best known as a jazz singer, Karen Young is also a gifted musician. Blessed with a deep sensitivity, she has explored all forms of music. Never one to turn down a musical challenge, she has sung in more than 20 languages on over 40 albums. Marianne Trudel is a pianist, composer, improviser and arranger, a true dynamo on the instrumental music scene in Canada, active here and abroad. These two extraordinary artists unite to revisit the Joni Mitchell — who just turned 75 — repertoire in a movingly original show.
