JUNE 18 & 19  Since it launched in 2007, one of the Luminato Festival’s signature events has been its concert honouring the Canadian songbook and beloved performers like Kate McGarrigle and Neil Young. This year, the festival’s musical centrepiece pays tribute to one of the 20th century’s most influential artists: Joni Mitchell. Covering more than 40 years of poetic lyrics and memorable melodies, Joni: a Portrait in Song brings together the likes of Glen Hansard, Kathleen Edwards, Rufus Wainwright, Herbie Hancock and many others for a performance of Mitchell’s iconic tunes—and a celebration of her 70th birthday. Massey Hall, 7:30 p.m., $35 to $175; call 416-368-4849 or visit luminatofestival.com for more information.  —Anna Marszalek
