Katie Noonan with Ben Hauptmann Joni Mitchell’s BLUE – 50th Anniversary tribute
About this event
To commemorate the 50th anniversary of this landmark album, celebrated artist and Sunshine Coast local, Katie Noonan will be presenting Blue alongside nationally acclaimed guitarist Ben Hauptmann. Bring your nearest and dearest to the Evie Networks Marquee on Noosa Main Beach for a nostalgic journey through Joni’s Blue Album. An additional performance from special guest Jo Davies treats us to her soulful sounds supporting Katie & Ben’s magical performance.
According to Mitchell, Blue was ‘probably the purest emotional record that I will ever make in my life….there’s hardly a dishonest note in the vocals’.
Over the past 20 years, five-time ARIA award-winning artist Katie Noonan has proven herself one of Australia’s most hardworking, versatile and prolific artists. Named one of the greatest Australian singers of all time by the Herald Sun, Katie has produced 20 studio albums throughout her career, with seven times platinum record sales under her belt and 27 ARIA award nominations that span diverse genres.
Ben Hauptmann is one of Australia’s most acclaimed and awarded guitarists and regularly collaborates with Katie and is the guitarist in her trio Elixir alongside her husband saxophonist/composer Zac Hurren.
‘BLUE is an album that unequivocally changed my life. From a compositional, lyrical and vocal performance point of view it has inspired my deeply. I love that the album was gifted to me from another female artist, and it is an album I regularly recommend to up and coming female artists also. Joni’s artistry and music genius is unparalleled and I absolutely love singing her song’. – Katie Noonan.
