7:00 p.m. Joni Mitchell Live at Club 47, Cambridge, Massachusetts, January 10, 1968
We go all the way back to 1968 for this Joni Mitchell performance at Club 47 here in the Boston area. It would later be called Passim’s Coffee House. Under either name, it has historically been a great music venue. I remember being in Harvard Square during a snow storm and dropping in to warm up. That was the night I had the honor of seeing Guy Clark for the very first time ever and it was one of the most memorable musical experiences of my life. But I digress. Club 47 was an old haunt for Joni Mitchell, and tonight we play her 1968 performance there in celebration of her 79th birthday (November 7).
Join us here in The Mermaid Lounge for another great day of music. Programming notwithstanding, the majority of our musical day is on wide Open Stream under the supervision of The Music Mermaid. It doesn’t get any better than that. Oh, wait, yes it does. Did I mention that we are totally free? No strings. No surprises. Just music.
