Rolling Stone called Joni Mitchell “one of the greatest songwriters ever”.
Roberta Joan “Joni” Mitchell was born in Fort Macleod. As she told Billboard magazine in 1995, the first memory she can recall took place in Fort Mac: Dust bunnies floating in a stream of sunlight above her crib.
Joni Mitchell, responsible for hits such as Both Sides Now and Big Yellow Taxi, is widely considered the 1960s and ’70s folk royalty.
Mitchell won her first Grammy Award for her 1969 album, Clouds. She has won seven more Grammy Awards.
