What wonderful surprises: Joni Mitchell and Paul Simon each performed at the Newport Folk Festival in Newport, Rhode Island over the weekend.
Joni flew from Los Angeles to play with her pal Brandi Carlile and Marcus Mumford. They performed Joni’s “A Case of You.” Joni is just breathtaking.
Paul Simon, retired from performing, made the trek from New York. He sang a few songs: American Tune, The Boxer, Homeward Bound, The Sound of Silence, Slip Slidin’ Away, Graceland, Me and Julio.
It’s all magic.
