Tierney Sutton

CenterStage at Fitchburg State University invites you to experience the music of Joni Mitchell as interpreted by celebrated jazz vocalist Tierney Sutton on Friday, Feb. 7 at 8 p.m. in Weston Auditorium, 353 North St.

Tickets are $35 for adults, $30 for seniors and $7 for children and Fitchburg State students. The Weston Box Office is open Thursday and Friday from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. and can be reached at (978) 665-3347. Tickets can also be ordered online. There will be a special pre-show dinner at the Fay Club in downtown Fitchburg. Call (978) 345-4537 to make a dinner reservation.

Joni Mitchell's lyrics and music were unique, evocative and definitive from their first note. As timely poetry, the songs entwine a universal voice through personal narrative. And as music, there is rich melodic and harmonic movement, plateaus for narrative and unresolved chords that reflect the emotional place of the story.

After spending years immersed in the many hues of Mitchell’s music, American Songbook vocalist Tierney Sutton's Joni Mitchell Project aspires to “paint a little ‘Blue’ portrait.” With the band's virtuosi - Christian Jacob on piano, Trey Henry on drums, and Kevin Axt on bass - the evening will be as intimate as a 1960s coffeehouse.

Before the performance there will be a spotlight talk with the artist at 7:15 p.m. with Fitchburg State Professor Michele Caniato.

The performance is co-presented by CenterStage at Fitchburg State and WICN-90.7 jazz radio and co-sponsored by Rollstone Bank & Trust and the Sentinel & Enterprise.
