MARQUISE KNOX asks on his new record
"Can a kid play the blues?" This 21 year
old St. Louis native hails from a musical
family deeply entrenched in the blues. He learned
how to play guitar from his grandmother whose
family were sharecroppers and whose great,
great grandparents were slaves. He spent his early
teenage years in St. Louis mentoring under the late
great Blues legend Henry James Townsend.
Marquise's talents have earned him performing

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."
