JUDY COLLINS has inspired audiences with sublime vocals, boldly vulnerable songwriting, personal life triumphs, and a firm commitment to social activism. In the 1960s, she evoked both the idealism and steely determination of a generation united against social and environmental injustices. Five decades later, her luminescent presence shines brightly as new generations bask in the glow of her iconic 55-album body of work, and heed inspiration from her spiritual discipline to thrive in the music industry for half a century.

The award-winning singer-songwriter is esteemed for her imaginative interpretations of traditional and contemporary folk standards and her own poetically poignant original compositions. Her stunning rendition of Joni Mitchell’s “Both Sides Now” from her landmark 1967 album, Wildflowers, has been entered into the Grammy Hall of Fame. Judy’s dreamy and sweetly intimate version of “Send in the Clowns,” a ballad written by Stephen Sondheim for the Broadway musical A Little Night Music, won “Song of the Year” at the 1975 Grammy Awards. She’s garnered several top-ten hits gold- and platinum-selling albums. Recently, contemporary and classic artists such as Rufus Wainwright, Shawn Colvin, Dolly Parton, Joan Baez, and Leonard Cohen honored her legacy with the album Born to the Breed: A Tribute to Judy Collins.

In 1961, she released her masterful debut, A Maid of Constant Sorrow, which featured interpretative works of social poets of the time such as Bob Dylan, Phil Ochs, and Tom Paxton. This began a wonderfully fertile thirty-five-year creative relationship with Jac Holzman and Elektra Records. Around this time Judy became a tastemaker within the thriving Greenwich Village folk community and brought other singer-songwriters to a wider audience, including poet/musician Leonard Cohen – and musicians Joni Mitchell and Randy Newman. Throughout the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, and up to the present, she has remained a vital artist, enriching her catalog with critically acclaimed albums while balancing a robust touring schedule.

Judy’s most recent collaboration with her as a singer-songwriter is the 2019 album Winter Stories, including critically-acclaimed Norwegian folk artist Jonas Fjeld, and masterful bluegrass band Chatham County Line. Winter Stories, is a collection of classics, new tunes, and a few surprises, featuring spirited lead vocal turns, breathtaking duets, and Judy’s stunning harmony singing.

Judy Collins is as creatively vigorous as ever, writing, touring worldwide, and nurturing fresh talent. She is a modern-day Renaissance woman who is also an accomplished painter, filmmaker, record label head, musical mentor, and an in-demand keynote speaker for mental health and suicide prevention. She continues to create music of hope and healing that lights up the world and speaks to the heart.If hindsight is 20/20 vision, ARLO GUTHRIE has a vast perspective looking forward. After decades of Arlo perpetually touring, the folksinger is dialing it back a bit, but the road has become a way of life for Arlo: sharing songs and stories, getting to the heart of what really matters, and of course, being a comedic agitator. It’s in his blood. It’s who he is. It’s what he does. Stirring the pot, questioning the powers that be, and reminding us what it’s all about with humor and passion.

Initially making a name for himself in the sixties with the iconic Alice’s Restaurant Massacree and providing perhaps the most often repeated phrase from Woodstock (“The New York State Thruway is closed, man.”), Guthrie helped define the singer-songwriter genre burgeoning in the seventies. With over thirty albums in his discography, an Arlo Guthrie show delivers an astounding time capsule from the works of his dad, Woody Guthrie, to the present day.

Although Arlo is going to ease the breakneck pace of touring from years past to take more time to ride his motorcycle, see the sights and visit friends, he will reappear at some of his favorite venues, and even a few new ones throughout 2020 and beyond. Arlo’s 20/20 Tour will continue to feature the crowd favorite Alice’s Restaurant Massacree through May 2020. Accompanying him will be longtime bandmates Abe Guthrie and drummer Terry “A La Berry” Hall. An evening with Arlo Guthrie will be what it’s always been — inspirational, uplifting, intimate, humorous, and affecting.

For select dates of Arlo’s 20/20 Tour, Guthrie will be joined by Folk Uke, the enchantingly harmonizing, irreverent and indecorously humored duo of Cathy Guthrie and Amy Nelson. Folk Uke has three albums to date and their music has been featured in Orange Is The New Black and Super Troopers 2.
