Folk music does not produce stars bigger than Judy Collins. For nearly fifty years, she has been performing and recording folk, pop, and art music at a very high level. A classical piano prodigy, Collins turned to folk music early on, embracing the social and musical elements of the movement. Her performances since the mid-1970s have balanced her original material with her other hits and gems by artists such as the Beatles and Harry Chapin—all showcases for her haunting, focused voice.

The award-winning singer-songwriter is esteemed for her imaginative interpretations of traditional and contemporary folk standards and her own poetically poignant original compositions. Her stunning rendition of Joni Mitchell’s “Both Sides Now,” from her landmark 1967 album Wildflowers, has been entered into the GRAMMY Hall of Fame. Collins’s dreamy and sweetly intimate version of “Send in the Clowns,” a ballad written by Stephen Sondheim for the Broadway musical A Little Night Music, won Song of the Year at the 1975 GRAMMY Awards. Throughout her career, she has garnered several top-ten hits and numerous gold- and platinum-selling albums. In 2008, contemporary and classic artists, such as Rufus Wainwright, Shawn Colvin, Dolly Parton, Joan Baez, and Leonard Cohen (who passed away in 2016), honored her legacy with the album Born to the Breed: A Tribute to Judy Collins.

Collins has inspired audiences with sublime vocals, boldly vulnerable personal life triumphs, and a firm commitment to social activism. In the 1960s, she evoked both the idealism and steely determination of a generation united against social and environmental injustices. Five decades later, her luminescent presence shines brightly as new generations bask in the glow of her iconic fifty-album body of work and heed inspiration from her spiritual discipline to thrive in the music industry for half a century.

The folksinger, whose most recent book was published in February 2017, released her latest album in 2015 entitled Strangers Again, which features the talents of Jeff Bridges, Jimmy Buffett, Don McLean, and Kris Kristofferson.
