As part of the Jameson Black Barrel series, the singer is heading to Belfast and Dublin to talk about the influence that Joni Mitchell’s Blue had on her.
There’s some records that stick with us forever. For celebrated singer and songwriter Orla Gartland, that album is Joni Mitchell’s Blue. The classic record has been an enduring influence on the Dublin songwriter’s process since it first came into her rotation and as part of the return of Jameson Black Barrel’s ‘Classic Album Nights’, she’s talking about it live.
On Wednesday 9 November Orla talks to Dylan Murphy of District Magazine live in The Camden, Dublin. The following day she heads to the Deers Head in Belfast to chat to Radio 1’s Gemma Bradley.
After speaking about the songs and stories in the album that pushed her pen, Orla will treat the audience to her interpretations of some of the album’s songs.
It comes after Orla released her critically-acclaimed debut album Woman on the Internet, which was nominated for the 2021 Choice Music Prize Album of the Year.
