Her voice is certainly not what it once was but I found it inspiring that Joni can still get out there and perform at all.  This was filmed only yesterday!

I remember David Crosby saying in his bio how floored he was at her talent after he first discovered her playing in a coffee house in Florida.  "I showed her Guinnevere, which I considered the best thing I'd ever done.  She proceeded to play me five of her tunes, all of which were as good or better."

Think seeing Wynonna carrying on the tour she'd planned w/her mother was poignant. Brandi is one of the women supporting her on the tour along w/Faith Hill, Trisha Yearwood, & other country musicians. 

Mitchell has had health problems her whole life starting as a child w/polio. She's a very determined woman.

This is so inspirational.  Yes, a much older and challenged woman interpreting one of her first iconic songs.
