About Judy Collins

Judy Collins has thrilled audiences worldwide with her unique blend of interpretative folk songs and contemporary themes.  Her impressive career has spanned more than 50 years.  At 13, Judy Collins made her public debut performing Mozart's Concerto For Two Pianos, but it was the music of such artists as Woody Guthrie and Pete Seeger, as well as the traditional songs of the folk revival, that sparked Judy's love of lyrics.  She soon moved away from the classical piano, and began her lifelong love with the guitar.

In 1961, at the age of 22, Judy Collins released her first album, A Maid Of Constant Sorrow.  She interpreted the songs of fellow artists, particularly the social poets of the time including Bob Dylan and Tom Paxton.  Judy was instrumental in bring other singer-songwriters to a wider audience including poet/musician Leonard Cohen and musicians Joni Mitchell and Randy Newman.

Judy Collins is also noted for her rendition of Joni Mitchell's Both Sides Now on her 1967 album, Wildflowers, which has since been entered into the Grammy Hall Of Fame.  Winning Song Of The Year at the 1975 Grammy Awards was Judy's version of Send In The Clowns, a ballad written by Stephen Sondheim for the Broadway musical A Little Night Music  Judy has continued an impressive musical career with an extensive catalogue from every decade throughout the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s and up to the present.  

Judy Collins is still writing, performing and nurturing new talent, and plays 80 to 100 live shows every year.  She is a relentlessly creative spirit, a modern day Renaissance woman who is also an accomplished painter, author, filmmaker, record label head, musical mentor and an in-demand keynote speaker for mental health and suicide prevention.  She continues to create music of hope and healing that lights up the world and speaks to the heart.
