Please enjoy this LIVE track of Joni Mitchell's "Woodstock" performed by Kiki Ebsen's Joni Mitchell Project at the Festival of Arts, Laguna Beach, CA.

Kiki Ebsen is a singer-songwriter who has built an exciting career that can find her, any day of the week, headlining a jazz festival, singing with a Symphony Pops orchestra, performing on stage in a show featuring the Great American Songbook, and she can still be found on hundreds of YouTube videos that remind people of the three plus decades she spent touring with Grammy-winners and platinum-selling artists who inspired her to keep on writing her own music. She was born to be on stage, somewhere, anywhere, everywhere. And today, she is. Check out her Calendar for her latest events and read further for the News section to learn more about her latest CD of originals currently in the works. 

a world-class songwriter-performer ... with a polished vocal style and songs of substance. ”
