Judy Collins: A Video Retrospective
Just before Suzanne Vega presented Judy Collins with her Bob Harrington Lifetime Achievement Award in March, 2019 at the 34th annual Bistro Awards, we showed this video retrospective that we created for the acclaimed singer-songwriter and Grammy Hall of Famer, in recognition of her six decades of musical accomplishment. The award was sponsored by ASCAP.
A classically-trained pianist, self-taught guitarist, and singer, Ms. Collins possesses a soaring, ethereal-yet-earthy soprano and eclectic taste that have allowed her to move back and forth easily through folk, pop, rock, standards, cabaret, and show tunes in her 60 years of recordings and performances. Her own writing skills have produced songs that rank with the iconic songs that she has covered. She has created a musical legacy second to none and she shows no signs of slowing down.
