More Than Blue: The Genius of Joni Mitchell’s For the Roses

January 18 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Music Matters is a series of bimonthly appreciation lectures given by Asheville FM DJs, volunteers, and affiliates. On Thursday, January 18, from 6–8 pm, join AFM for the next presentation in this series, “More Than Blue: The Genius of Joni Mitchell’s For the Roses,” presented by Asheville FM DJ, Sarah B. This event will take place at the Asheville FM Station at 864 Haywood Road in West Asheville.

“Most people hear Joni Mitchell’s name and they think of her fourth album, Blue,” says Sarah. “Or they think of her sixth album, Court and Spark. But in between was For the Roses. Lush and somber, stentorian and joyous, wise and wistful, it’s a gem of 1972, when Mitchell’s voice was at the peak of its versatility.”

This presentation is free to the public, with a suggested donation of $5-$50 (pay at the event, cash or credit/debit accepted). Those who donate $50 will automatically become Asheville FM members. Email to register. Advance registration is required.
