Joni Mitchell has won the 2024 Grammy Award for Best Folk Album, with Joni Mitchell at Newport (Live) winning over albums by Dom Flemons (Traveling Wildfire), the Milk Carton Kids (I Only See the Moon), Nickel Creek (Celebrants), Old Crow Medicine Show (Jubilee), Paul Simon (Seven Psalms), and Rufus Wainwright (Folkocracy). Mitchell took the stage in Los Angeles with Brandi Carlile to accept her Grammy.

Joni Mitchell at Newport (Live) documented the surprise “Joni Jam” at the 2022 Newport Folk Festival, which singer-songwriter Brandi Carlile emceed; Cameron Crowe authored the liner notes for the album’s release. It was Mitchell’s first public performance in nearly a decade, with Carlile, Blake Mills, and Wynonna Judd among her supporting players on stage.

As she’s recovered from a 2015 brain aneurysm, Mitchell has made an increasing number of public appearances in more recent years, accepting Kennedy Center Honors and, in 2022, a Best Historical Album Grammy Award for Archives, Vol. 1: The Early Years (1963-1967).
