An Evening with Judy Collins
Sweet Judy Blue Eyes: My Life in Music Few artists have the staying power of Judy Collins. For more than 50 years, she has delighted audiences with herclear and lovely voice and played a leading role in the careers of Jewish composers and songwriters, popularizing songs by Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Randy Newman and many more.Collins recorded 37 albums, has had multiple top-ten hits and Grammy wins. She also is a best-selling author, political activist, Academy Award-nominated documentary filmmaker and accomplished watercolor artist. Collins is a classically trained pianist who moved to the guitar when she was 16. Infl uenced by songwriters like Woody Guthrie and Pete Seeger, she became a fixture on the folk-rock music scene and was the inspiration for the classic “Suite: Judy Blue Eyes.” Collins has dealt with great tragedy aswell as recovery, love as well as loss, success as well as failure.
“... a fascinating and even harrowing musical and
personal reflection” – Kirkus Reviews “Collins’ improbable and utterly charming tale of assuming iconic status as a popular music star from the early 1960s onward also
proves a tremendously valuable chronicle of the early folk music scene...forthright, radiant work.” - Publisher’s Weekly (Starred Review)
