The third Lincoln Jazz Festival weekend takes place in Lincoln’s spectacular Cathedral on 19th/21st/22nd July, 2024. This historic landmark once again plays host to leading national and international jazz musicians, continuing the Cathedral’s centuries-old tradition of celebrating live music.

 

This seven-piece band celebrates and honours Joni Mitchell’s masterpieces from her late ‘70 ‘jazz period’ – to rave reviews! After ‘The Hissing of Sumer Lawns’, ‘Hejira’, ‘Don Juan’s Reckless Daughter’ and ‘Mingus’, Joni toured with a band featuring the best contemporary jazz musicians, including Metheny, Pastorious and Brecker, producing a live album of that outstanding tour ‘Shadows and Light’ which underpins this show. The brilliant vocalist Hattie Whitehead assimilates Mitchell’s distinctive vocal and guitar-playing but in her own style, supported by guitarist Pete Oxley and a superb band for an emotional festival finale.
