About the Joni Mitchell Tribute Show




Join us for a celebration of the songs and artistry of Joni Mitchell as we bring her songs to life! Often referred to as the greatest contemporary songwriter, Joni has been a huge influence in our lives and music over the years. Joni’s career has spanned over half a century, and in that time, she explored and experimented with many genres of music and made them her own. We have selected some of our favorite Joni songs and aspire to honor the original and explore our individual artistry through her songs. Liz Barnez, Rebecca Folsom, and Celeste Krenz will sing and provide harmony vocals, guitar, and piano. Accompanying will be a group of Colorado’s finest musicians: Eric Moon on keys, Steve Ivey on drums, Eric Thorin on bass, and Eric Straumanis on guitar.


Liz Barnez: Liz Barnez has been a touring performing songwriter for over 35 years. Born and raised in New Orleans, Liz’s music is informed by the rhythms and musical traditions of her place of birth. She moved to Fort Collins, Colorado, where she continues to write, record, and perform. “You’ll want to listen to the lyrics, but you’ll want to dance while doing so”…a fan. Liz was inducted into the Colorado Music Hall of Fame in November 2019 as a member of the “Mother Folkers”. She was named “Best Female Singer/Songwriter” by her peers and FoCoMA (Fort Collins Musicians Association); she was also presented with the Lifetime Music Award in 2016 by FoCoMA. Liz is currently in the studio recording and is releasing a single a month in 2024, culminating in the release of the full album toward the end of the year!

Rebecca Folsom: Colorado singer-songwriter and international touring artist, Rebecca Folsom is on a mission to change the world one listener at a time! Rebecca has released eleven albums and written and published two books of poetry. Her latest album, Sanctuary, collaborates with activists, social justice organizations, and those impacted in compromised, disempowered situations. The title song, Sanctuary, was a finalist in the 2021 International Songwriting Competition and went to #1 on the National Roots Folk Radio Chart. In addition, Rebecca facilitates vibrant coaching workshops. “Rebecca Folsom’s newest album Sanctuary is worthy of awe.” Americana Highways “Her songs hit like little earthquakes.’ Westword Magazine

Celeste Krenz: Former Denverite Celeste Krenz is a singer/songwriter of rare talent with a pure, sweet voice. Her music is infused with healthy doses of pop tunefulness and folky austerity–a classic example of Nashville songwriting a la Nanci Griffith, Iris DeMent, and Emmylou Harris. “An infectious blend of sweet vocals, story based lyrics and acoustic sensibilities.” Billboard Magazine: “Meticulously drawn songwriting, equal parts, torch and poetry, brain and soul.” David Kirby, Denver Post


Eric Moon (KEYS) has worked with diverse artists, from Jackson Browne to Bjork, created factory preset sounds for keyboards from Alesis and M-Audio, and scored for national television advertising and cable. He currently works as a studio musician and performer in and around Denver.

Eric Straumanis (GUITAR) is a guitarist from Fort Collins and has played with various artists, including Jeff Finlin, Erik Lunde, Liz Barnez, Bevin Luna, and John Magnie’s Honky Tonk Happy Hour. He is originally from Iowa City, Iowa where he gigged and toured frequently throughout the Midwest, Eastern US and on occasion, Europe.

Eric Thorin (BASS) Eric is a highly regarded musician/bassist living on the front range of the Colorado Rocky Mountains. He can be found on stage in 2024 in The Matt Flinner Trio with Ross Martin, on the road with the Peter Rowan Bluegrass Band, Bonnie Paine, Tony Furtado and Celtic supergroup, The Bow Tides.

Owner of Ethoriole Music, Eric is honored to have performed on two Grammy nominated recordings: Calling You From My Mountain with The Peter Rowan Bluegrass Band and Man On Fire by Danny Barnes.

Steve Ivey (DRUMS ) Steve brings his versatility, positivity, and joy of playing music to every show he plays. Steve started playing drums at a very young age. He has played with many of the greats as a member of the eTones (house band at NPR’s eTown radio show), Opie Gone Bad, Chris Daniels and the Kings.
