A fox comes to Foxboro
March 21, 2013 by James
Diverse singer and songwriter Judy Collins is set to hit the stage in Foxboro in time for the weekend.
Collins has mesmerized her fans and audiences all over the world. Her distinctive ability to bridge illuminating folk music and contemporary themes are one of the many talents that set her apart.
With an impressive career spanning over 40 years, Collins is as popular today as ever. At the tender age of 13, she arrived on the music scene with a public performance of ‘Concerto for Two Pianos’ by Mozart. However, it was the sounds of the folk revival, coupled with Pete Seeger and Woody Guthrie’s work, that influenced her unique style. She traded her piano for a guitar and, in 1961, cut her first album. She was 22 when ‘A Maid of Constant Sorrow’ was released, thus; beginning a thirty-five year alliance with Jack Holzman of Elektra Records.
