Judy Collins On Her Career, Her Life And Folk Music


Judy Collins

Judy Collins is still going strong and is performing in Las Vegas this weekend.

You might know her by her renditions of the ballads “Both Sides Now” and “Send In The Clowns,” or you might be familiar with the decades of other emotional and introspective tunes such as “Since You’ve Asked” and “My Father.”

Judy Collins has been performing since she was 13 and at 76, is still going.

She’s performing with Don McLean at the Orleans Hotel and Casino this weekend and joined us to talk about her early years as a classical pianist, her father's influence and her thoughts on today's music industry.

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for. If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
