On November 15, 2013 at 7:45PM the Fairfield Theatre Company presents Judy Collins. Judy Collins is eclectic, eccentric, and electrifying. Known for the diversity of her material, and her modern interpretation of the folk tradition, Collins made her musical debut at thirteen as a classical pianist, and later took an interest in the folk movement and activism of the day. Today she is a titan of the folk world, esteemed alongside Bob Dylan, Tom Paxton, Pete Seeger, and more. Her effect has been wide ranging and profound, bringing many now prominent artists like Leonard Cohen, Joni Mitchell, Randy Newman, to attention. She even put the Judy in Suite: Judy Blue Eyes. Judy Collins has also made important political and social contributions, including her friendship with Yippie's Abbie Hoffman and Jerry Rubin, her testimonial on the behalf of the Chicago Seven, and her campaigning against landmine use with UNICEF. Seldom does one person have so great an impact on their world. Artistically, politically, and culturally, Judy Collins is a force. It is with great honor, that we present Judy Collins, live and in concert at The Fairfield Theatre Company.
