Judy Collins has thrilled audiences worldwide with her
 unique blend of interpretative folksongs and 
contemporary themes. Her impressive career has 
spanned more than 40 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 Collins' love of lyrics.
In 1961, Judy Collins released her first album, 
A Maid of Constant Sorrow, at the age of 22.

Collins' rendition of Joni Mitchell's
 "Both Sides Now" from her 1967 
album Wildflowers, quickly gained "classic" status.
 "Both Sides Now" has since been entered into
 the Grammy's Hall of Fame. Winning "Song of the Year" 
at the 1975 Grammy's Awards show was 
Judy's version of "Send in the Clowns."
