a case of you: the music of joni mitchell

Written by Deborah Brennan

Created by vocalist/pianist Deborah Brennan, A Case of You: The Music of Joni Mitchell 

pays homage to one of the most inspiring singer songwriters of the Woodstock generation. 

Do not be mistaken in thinking that this is another tribute show. Rather, the opposite would be true: 

Brennan has connected the musical dots from Mitchell's formidable body of work which echoed the zeitgeist of the turbulent 70s and has crafted them into a memorable soundtrack of her own life wrapped in a contemporary story.


Delivered in a different context, classic songs such as A Case of You, Big Yellow Taxi, Both Sides Now, take on an altogether different resonance and have a sassy modernity which will appeal to both old fans and new listeners alike. 

"Beautiful to watch and beautiful to listen to." ★★★★ - The Clothesline

"Brennan's personal engagement with the music is the fuel that powers the show and lights it up." 

★★★★- The Edinburgh Reporter

"A gem of a show, beautiful and hauntingly simple, just like Mitchell herself." ★★★1/2 - The Australia Times
