Judy Collins Performs at the Cascade for the First Time on February 4
For Immediate Release
The Cascade Theatre and Jefferson Public Radio present Judy Collins in concert at Redding's historic Cascade Theatre on February 4, 2012 at 7:30pm.
Judy Collins has thrilled audiences worldwide with her unique blend of interpretative folksongs and contemporary themes. Originally trained as a classical musician on the piano, Judy Collins became inspired by the lyrics and music of such artists as Woody Guthrie and Pete Seeger, as well as the traditional songs of the folk music revival. She picked up the guitar and never looked back.
Soon Judy Collins began interpreting the songs of fellow artists -- particularly the social poets of the time such as Bob Dylan, Phil Ochs and Tom Paxton. As her career took hold, she became instrumental in bringing other singer-songwriters to a wider audience including poet/musician Leonard Cohen and musicians Joni Mitchell and Randy Newman.
Judy Collins is well known for her rendition of Joni Mitchell's Both Sides Now on her 1967 album, Wildflowers which has since been entered into the Grammy Hall of Fame. Winning Song of the Year at the 1975 Grammy Awards was Judy's version of Send in the Clowns, a ballad written by Stephen Sondheim.
