Judy Collins has inspired audiences with sublime vocals, boldly vulnerable songwriting, personal life triumphs, and a firm commitment to social activism for decades. In the 1960s, she evoked both the idealism and steely determination of a generation united against social and environmental injustices. Her luminescent presence continues to shine brightly as new generations bask in the glow of her iconic 50-album body of work, and heed inspiration from her spiritual discipline to thrive in the music industry for half a century.

The award-winning singer-songwriter 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. She’s garnered several top-ten hits gold- and platinum-selling albums.

The Passenger String Quartet is a Pacific Northwest group that was originally formed by members of the Seattle Rock Orchestra. The group performs original compositions by contemporary local composers, backs a wide variety of regional, and national groups from David Bazan, DJ Spooky, Suzanne Vega, to Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, Shenandoah Davis, Thousands, and more.
