Judy Collins is one of the major interpretive singers to emerge from the Greeenwich Village folk scene of the early '60s and remains active as a touring and recording artist in the 21st century. She possesses an immediately recognizable pure, sweet soprano. She was among the first on the scene to embrace contemporary songwriters. Her hit interpretations of songs by Leonard Cohen and Joni Mitchell exposed them to wider pop audiences. From the 1970s on Collins has been identified with art song as well as folk and pop. She has also become a songwriter. Her best-known recorded performances over the next three decades cover a wide stylistic range from "Amazing Grace" to Stephen Sondheim's "Send in the Clowns" to Bob Dylan's "Gotta Serve Somebody." ~ William Ruhlmann
