Judy Collins has thrilled audiences worldwide with her unique blend of folk songs and contemporary themes. Her career has spanned more than 50 years since 1961 when she released her first album, A Maid of Constant Sorrow, at the age of 22. As folk music generated the singer/songwriter, Judy was instrumental in bringing many to a wider audience including Leonard Cohen, Joni Mitchell and Randy Newman. Along the way she won “Song of the Year” at the 1975 Grammy Awards for her version of “Send in the Clowns”.

Judy has continued an impressive musical career with a repertoire from every decade from the 60s to the present. Collector’s Choice Music has reissued nine digitally remastered albums of Collins’ Elektra titles. Not content to rest on her back catalogue, in 2010 Judy released a new album, Paradise, on her own Wildflower Records, featuring duets of Judy with old friends Stephen Stills and Joan Baez.

Entering her eighth decade, Judy is still writing, performing, and nurturing fresh talent. She plays 80 to 100 dates a year around the country. She continues to create music of hope that lights up the world and speaks to the heart.
