Gillian Sings Joni
The Gillian Snider Quintet has been proudly paying homage to the music of Joni Mitchell since 2017: the well-loved songs that changed the face of folk music, the innovative jazz-infused creations that turned the world of contemporary music on its head, and also the Jazz standards that Joni chose to record later in her career. Joni Mitchell's music has touched most of us in one way or another and Gillian is excited to be sharing stories and the music that we all know and love. Joining her in this project are Kim Salked on piano, Adam Streisel on trumpet, Nevin Buehler on bass, Kyle Krysa on drums, with special guest guitarist, Brett Balon.
Aside from playing Saskatoon's Jazz Bassment and the Saskatchewan Jazz Festival annually since 2017, The Gillian Sings Joni project was overjoyed to be given the opportunity to play for the iconic woman herself by live feed to her home in LA in June of 2018 - for that performance we were happily joined by Aidan Weiman on drums and Scott Triffo on guitar.
