In the Sixties, Judy Collins evoked both the idealism and steely determination of a generation united against social and environmental injustices. Five decades later, new generations are still discovering her iconic 50-album body of work.

The award-winning singer-songwriter is highly regarded for her interpretations of traditional and contemporary folk standards and her own original compositions.

Her hit rendition of Joni Mitchell’s Both Sides Now has been entered into the Grammy Hall of Fame, while her 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.

Contemporary and classic artists such as Rufus Wainwright, Arlo Gutherie, Joan Baez and Leonard Cohen recently honoured Collins’ legacy with the album, Born to the Breed: A Tribute to Judy Collins.
