Judy Collins

Presented by David Roy Williams


Judy Collins will perform her best-known songs in a spellbindingly intimate concert.

Judy Collins has inspired audiences across the globe with her sublime vocals, boldly vulnerable songwriting, personal life triumphs, and firm commitment to social activism. A Greenwich Village contemporary of Joan Baez, Cohen, and Bob Dylan, and the inspiration for CS&N’s ‘Judy Blue Eyes’, the Grammy Award-winning Collins is esteemed for her imaginative interpretations of traditional and contemporary folk standards, and her own poetically poignant original compositions.

Having scored Grammys for Both Sides Now and Send In The Clowns, Collins was again nominated for a Grammy in 2017. In the same year, her rendition of Amazing Grace was selected by the Library of Congress as being ‘culturally, historically, or artistically significant’.

In 2019, at 80 years of age, Judy’s catalogue of Gold and Platinum albums reached its zenith with the release of Winter Stories – her first USA No.1 album.

On stage, Judy’s luminescent presence shines brightly as new generations bask in the glow of her iconic body of work, and heed inspiration from her spiritual discipline to thrive in the music industry for over half a century.

As well as Judy’s stunning rendition of Joni Mitchell’s Both Sides Now, the concerts will feature renowned Collins songs such as Diamonds And Rust, Michael From The Mountain, Angels In The Snow, and Amazing Grace, as well as songs by Leonard Cohen, Jimmy Webb, and Bob Dylan, and her Grammy-winning rendition of Send In The Clowns.
