Hejira is a seven piece band set up to celebrate and honour the masterpiece works of Joni Mitchell, mostly from her late ‘70s “jazz period”.

Having released the albums The Hissing of Summer Lawns, Hejira, Don Juan’s Reckless Daughter and Mingus, Joni then toured briefly with a band formed from the crème de la crème of contemporaneous jazz musicians (Metheny, Mays, Brecker, Pastorius and Alias). The tour was recorded, producing the outstanding live album, Shadows and Light; it is from this album that the band Hejira is drawing the body of its repertoire.

Comprised of highly experienced jazz musicians, this band is fronted by the brilliant Hattie Whitehead who not only has, in her own way, assimilated the poise, power and beauty of Joni’s vocals, but also plays guitar with Joni’s stylistic mannerisms. Expect an evening of the great songs from Mitchell’s back catalogue, such as ‘Amelia’, ‘Woodstock’, 'A Case Of You’, ’Song For Sharon’, 'Edith And The Kingpin’ and more.
