‘Hejira’ is a 7-piece band set up to celebrate and honour the masterful musical works of Joni Mitchell, mostly from the late ‘70s – her ‘jazz period’. The group are fronted by the brilliant vocalist and guitarist Hattie Whitehead who, in her own way, captures the poise, power and beauty of Joni’s vocals – as well as her stylistic mannerisms on guitar.
We are delighted to welcome Hejira to Jazz Steps at the Bonington. Join us to savour their moving live performance of Joni’s iconic songs that embody a potent interplay of poetic lyrics and jazz-inflected music. The band’s tour gigs have been a sell-out – so book tickets early to avoid disappointment!
