For this special late afternoon performance, Lachlan will call up a variety of special, all-star guests for a good ol’ country singalong. Expect to hear anything from Sinatra to George Jones, as well as choice cuts from the Lachlan Bryan and The Wildes back catalogue.
Jen Mize has spent her isolation during this past year learning about her hero Joni Mitchell, learning her songs, how to play the Appalachian dulcimer and piano, how to use the numerous alternate tunings of Mitchell... learning all the stories behind the songs... all in order to pay homage to one of the greatest songwriters of all time, Joni Mitchell.
The songs Jen will present will be an intimate preview of the upcoming tour show.
