Judy Collins has been a mainstay in folk music since breaking into the Greenwich Village music scene in the early 60s. Her 1967 album Wildflowers: Both Sides Now earned her a Grammy for Best Folk Performance for the title track hit single. She famously sang at the 1969 trial of the Chicago Seven and is easily recognized as a leading voice for social justice issues. With countless recordings and a continuous concert schedule, Judy Collins is a national treasure. Sunday night at 9:00 hear both early and current recordings from Judy Collins and a conversation about her incredible career.
