Judy Collins & Arlo Guthrie
Award-winning singer-songwriter Judy Collins 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. 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.
Iconic folk singer-songwriter Arlo Guthrie has been known to generations as a prolific songwriter, social commentator, master storyteller, actor and activist. Son of Woody Guthrie, Arlo has become an iconic figure in folk music in his own right with a distinguished and varied career spanning over fifty years. Arlo’s best-known work is his debut piece “The Alice’s Restaurant Massacree,” an 18-minute-long satirical talking blues song which has become a Thanksgiving anthem on rock stations. He’s also known for his Top 40 hit “The City of New Orleans,” and his song “Massachusetts” was named the official folk song of his home state.
