An Evening With Judy Collins
September 15 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm$34 – $100
50 years ago, singer-songwriter Stephen Still met singer-songwriter Judy
Collins, known for her piercing ocean blue eyes. Their tumultuous love
affair would later be immortalized by Stills with his composition “Suite:
Judy Blue Eyes,” performed by Crosby, Stills & Nash on their landmark
debut. Both artists would go gone to shape modern music with visionary
approaches, but Stills and Collins’ short fiery union remains a
transformative era for the two artists.
This summer, the two icons of folk will celebrate the golden anniversary of
their formative time together. Their joint summer tour marks the first time ever
Stills and Collins have been onstage together. For this once in a lifetime
experience, the two music legends will pull from their rich catalogs, debut
songs from their upcoming album, due out Summer of 2017, and share warm
and intimate stories from their journeys and the1960s folk and Laurel Canyon
scenes they helped build.
Stills and Collins met in 1967 and dated for two years. Stills wrote and demoed
his legendary love song to Collins right after he left Buffalo Springfield, before
he joined CSN. “Suite: Judy Blue Eyes” is a five-section romantic epic
brimming with heartfelt sincerity. The song has been ranked #418 in Rolling
Stone’s 500 Greatest Songs Of All Time Poll.
