The Calumet Theatre presents An Evening with Judy Collins and her her unique blend of interpretative folk songs and contemporary themes. Her career has spanned more than 40 years. In 1961, Judy Collins released her first album, "A Maid of Constant Sorrow," at age 22. She is noted for her rendition of Joni Mitchell's "Both Sides Now" on her classic 1967 album, "Wildflowers." "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," a ballad written by Stephen Sondheim for the Broadway musical "A Little Night Music." Now 71, she plays 80 to100 dates a year around the country and is also an accomplished painter, filmmaker, record label head, musical mentor and an in-demand keynote speaker for mental health and suicide prevention.
