JUDY COLLINS is an impressive personality: her career spans seven decades. She sang with Joan Baez and released the first recording of Leonard Cohen's legendary chanson "Suzanne." Bob Dylan wrote "Mr. Tambourine Man" in her Greenwich Village living room, and Stephen Stills of Crosby, Stills & Nash memorialized her with "Suite Judy Blue Eyes." Her song "Chelsea Morning" inspired Bill and Hillary Clinton in naming their daughter.
JUDY COLLINS also likes to tell this and many other stories at her concerts, which are rare in continental Europe and therefore as special as she is. In 2022 there is finally another chance to see the legendary singer-songwriter live on her "Spellbound" tour.
Judy Collins began her impressive music career at the age of 13 as a piano prodigy, wowing audiences with Mozart's "Concerto for Two Pianos." When she became aware of the music of artists such as Woody Guthrie and Pete Seeger, she abandoned that career path in favor of folk music. Her path led her to a lifelong love affair with the guitar and the search for emotional truth in lyrics. However, the focus and regimented practice of classical music would be a source of strength for her inner core as she navigated the ups and downs of the music business.
