Judy Collins announces London and Manchester shows (2013)
Story by Jack Foley
JUDY Collins is to play two shows in the UK in London and Manchester – at two very special venues later this year.
On September 30, 2013, she will play St Ann’s Church, Manchester, while on October 1, 2013, she’ll be at Union Chapel, London.
Collins has played with all the folk greats of the ’60s (including Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen and Joni Mitchell), won Grammy awards, had top 10 hits and platinum selling albums across the world.
More recently, contemporary and classic artists such as Rufus Wainwright, Shawn Colvin, Arlo Gutherie, Joan Baez, and Leonard Cohen honoured her legacy with the album Born to the Breed: A Tribute to Judy Collins.
Five decades on she is still touring and recording.
