Joni Mitchell: Live at the Isle of Wight Festival 1970
Despite it being one of the era’s finest concert lineups, when Joni Mitchell took the stage Saturday afternoon on August 29, 1970, the Isle of Wight Festival had already seen its share of tumult. Armed with only an acoustic guitar, a dulcimer a piano, and her own singular voice, she delivered an incredibly emotional and ultimately triumphant performance that included her iconic masterpieces “Woodstock,” “Big Yellow Taxi,” and “Both Sides Now” to an unruly crowd of over 600,000. Catch her overpoweringly moving, live performance in the film directed by Murray Lerner, this weekend on KERA TV.
