WOW Moment: Prince's Island Stroll with Joni Mitchell

"I will always remember a superb warm, bright and peaceful summer afternoon walking with Joni Mitchell on Prince's Island.

As we were strolling along the Bow River, talking about music and life, a few passers-by recognized her and we all started to chat about Calgary. Her vivid and poetic remembrances of her time lived here were inspiring and touching. "
