Joni Mitchell Music Featured at May 26 Worship Service in Waquoit

The Waquoit Congregational Church features the music and wisdom of Joni Mitchell at its 10 am Sunday, May 26 worship service. The service, The Gospel According to Joni Mitchell, pairs scripture with songs from the musical icon.

“Besides being a prolific songwriter, Joni Mitchell is very spiritual. She actually has a number of songs that referred directly to the Hebrew and Christian scriptures,” said the Rev. Nell Fields, minister of the Waquoit church.  “Other songs lift up themes from the wisdom tradition, such as Circle Game, Both Sides Now. This worship service is a good way to see the Holy in what we might consider the ordinary.”

Falmouth resident Dawn Hammers, vocals and piano, leads the music for this service. Hammers has performed Joni Mitchell tributes for the past 10 years. Pat Ryan, also from Falmouth, joins Hammers on guitar.

The public is invited to attend the worship service that congregational singing. Attendees are encouraged to wear berets and tie-dyed as a shout out to Mitchell.

The Waquoit Church is located at 15 Parson Lane and Route 28 in E. Falmouth. For more information, call the church office at 508-548-5269.
