Judy Collins has thrilled audiences worldwide with her unique blend of folksong interpretations and contemporary themes. Her career has spanned more than 50 years. In 1961 Judy released her first album, “A Maid of Constant Sorrow.” at the age of 22 and began a 35-year association with Elektra Records. She interpreted the songs of fellow artists, particularly the social poets of the time such as Bob Dylan, Phil Ochs and Tom Paxton. Judy was instrumental in bringing singer-songwriters to a wider audience, including Bob Dylan, Phil Ochs, Tom Paxton, Leonard Cohen, Joni Mitchell, and Randy Newman. Judy’s career has included new album releases in every decade since the 1960s, and she’s written books including “Sanity & Grace,” a memoir focusing on the death of her only son and the healing process that followed. Judy Collins is still a relentlessly creative spirit who’s writing, performing 80 to 100 dates a year, and nurturing fresh talent. -excerpt taken from theark.org
