Published: 2006-11-10
Canadian folk legend Joni Mitchell is one of four songwriters being inducted into the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame.

Other inductees include country singer and yodeler Wilf Carter, Quebec singer-songwriter Jean-Pierre Ferland and Broadway/film composer Raymond Egan.

The Hall of Fame is also honouring 25 classic songs and giving legacy awards to tenor Henry Burr and folk impresario Sam Gesser.

"Like previous honourees, the 2007 inductees have made an invaluable contribution to Canada's cultural legacy through the timeless art of song," said Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame chairman Peter Steinmetz.

The gala takes place January 28 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre's John Bassett Theatre.
