AN EVENING WITH JUDY COLLINS

May 26, 2006, The Esplanade Concert Hall 7:30 pm

American folk music icon Judy Collins will perform in Singapore for the first time ever on May 26, 2006 at The Esplanade Concert Hall.
Judy Collins is a living legend. Her musical influence has spread over decades and her vocal interpretations have inspired millions.
From her participation in the 1964 Freedom marches in Mississippi ("Hey Nellie Nellie") to her political activism during the Vietnam War (Dylan's Masters Of War"), to the leadership role she has played on the forefront of women's issues ("Bread And Roses"), to her recent book ¡°Sanity & Grace¡± and her role as UNICEF Special Representative for the Arts, Judy Collins has always fought the good fight and remained vibrant as an artist.
At 13, She 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. She soon moved away from the classical piano and began her lifelong love with the guitar.
In 1961 Judy Collins released her first album, A Maid of Constant Sorrow which began a thirty-five year association with Jac Holzman & Elektra records.
Her 1966 release ¡°Both Sides Now¡± from her acclaimed album ¡°Wildflowers¡± earned her the first of many Grammy nominations and is now enshrined in the Grammy¡¯s Hall of Fame.
She even inspired one of the biggest songs of the 1970¡¯s when Stephen Stills penned the Crosby, Stills & Nash hit ¡°Suite Judy Blue Eyes¡± in her honor.
In 1972 she released the renowned collection ¡°Colors of the Day¡± which has remained one of the top 50 catalogue albums for the past 30 years. A favorite of Bill & Hillary Clinton, it was Judy¡¯s version of ¡°Chelsea Morning¡± that inspired the naming of their daughter Chelsea.
In 1975 Judy won the Grammy for song of the year for "Send in the Clowns," a ballad written by Stephen Sondheim for the Broadway musical "A Little Night Music."
Judy's recent book, ¡°Sanity and Grace¡± is a deeply moving memoir, focusing on the loss of her only son and the healing process following the tragedy.
Also newly available is ¡°Judy Collins sings Leonard Cohen¡±. Judy¡¯s tribute to Cohen includes 3 new recordings, as well as 11 classic Collins/Cohen collaborations. Judy Collins continues to create music of hope and healing that lights up the world and speaks. Don¡¯t miss Judy Collins first ever performance in Singapore on May 26th.
