    WHAT:        Grammy-winning singer/songwriter Judy Collins returns to Walt Disney Concert Hall on Tuesday, December 17, 2013, at 8:00 PM for A Judy Collins Christmas, an evening of holiday songs and Collins’ own greatest hits. 

    Judy Collins has inspired audiences for over five decades with her sublime vocals, boldly vulnerable songwriting, personal life triumphs, and a firm commitment to social activism. The award-winning singer-songwriter boasts a 50-album body of work and is esteemed for her imaginative interpretations of traditional and contemporary folk standards as well as her own poetically poignant original compositions. Her stunning rendition of Joni Mitchell's “Both Sides Now” from the landmark 1967 album, Wildflowers, has been entered into the Grammy Hall of Fame. Collins’ version of Stephen Sondheim’s “Send in the Clowns” won “Song of the Year” at the 1975 Grammy Awards. She has garnered several top-ten hits, and gold- and platinum-selling albums. In 2008, contemporary and classic artists such as Rufus Wainwright, Shawn Colvin, Arlo Guthrie, Joan Baez, and Leonard Cohen honored her legacy with the album Born to the Breed: A Tribute to Judy Collins. Her latest release in October 2010, was the CD/DVD Judy Collins Live At The Metropolitan Museum Of Art which also aired on PBS and celebrated her iconic career. Now 74, Collins is as creatively vigorous as ever, writing songs and annually performing 80 to 100 dates nationwide.
