Judy Collins
Judy Collins has thrilled audiences worldwide with her unique blend of interpretative folksongs and contemporary themes. Her impressive career has spanned more than 50 years. At 13, Judy Collins made her public debut performing Mozart’s Concerto for Two Pianos but it was the music of such artists as Woody Guthrie and Pete Seeger, as well as the traditional songs of the folk revival, that sparked Judy’s love of lyrics. She soon moved away from the classical piano and began her lifelong love with the guitar.

Judy has continued an impressive musical career with an extensive catalog from every decade throughout the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s and up to the present. She has also authored several books, including the inspirational memoir entitled Sanity & Grace. She is co-director, with Jill Godmillow, of an Academy Award nominated film about Antonia Brico, the first woman to conduct major symphonies around the world—and Judy’s classical piano teacher when she was young. In 1999, Judy founded her own record label, Wildflower Records, a grass roots artist driven label committed to nurturing fresh talent.

Judy Collins, now 75, is still writing, performing, and nurturing fresh talent. She plays 80 to100 dates a year around the country. Judy Collins, a relentlessly creative spirit, is a modern day Renaissance woman who is also an accomplished painter, filmmaker, record label head, musical mentor, and an in-demand keynote speaker for mental health and suicide prevention. She continues to create music of hope and healing that lights up the world and speaks to the heart.

Rachael Sage
A soulful vocalist and innovative multi-instrumentalist, singer/songwriter and producer Rachael Sage has become one of the busiest touring artists in independent music, performing 100+ dates a year with her band The Sequins throughout the US, UK, Europe and Asia. She has earned a loyal following for her dynamic piano playing, delicate guitar work, soulful vocals. and improvisational audience interaction.

Sage has shared stages with Sarah McLachlan, A Great Big World, Judy Collins, Colin Hay, Shawn Colvin, Marc Cohn, The Animals and Ani DiFranco. She has performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and received numerous songwriting awards including The John Lennon Songwriting Contest (Grand Prize) and several Independent Music Awards. Her songs have appeared on MTV, HBO, the “Fame” soundtrack, and in the current season of Lifetime’s #1 reality series,”Dance Moms”.

MPress Records released Sage’s latest full-length album, “Blue Roses”, on November 4 in the US (March 2015 in the UK/Ireland). Produced by Sage and Grammy® Nominee John Shyloski (Johnny Winter, Stephen Kellogg), the album features 13 brand new chamber-pop gems, and showcases the NYC-based multi-instrumentalist’s confident, sophisticated songwriting. Featuring members of Daft Punk, Patti Smith and Bruce Springsteen’s bands, the recording includes a duet with folk icon Judy Collins.

    Oh my goodness I grew up to Judy Collins and Joan Baez’ music. I saw Judy Collins in Oklahoma City around 1969–it was my second live concert. How I would to see her again to send her love from the audience.

    It would be a great night! Judy Collins taught my sister how to play a song on the guitar when they were high school students in Denver…..and one of my dad’s favorite memories was standing on the Colorado state capitol steps singing Amazing Grace with Judy Collins on his left and John Denver on his right!

    My daughter and are of such different eras…she’s 21 and I just turned 70. Although I groove to her musical tastes she has a harder time appreciating mine. I would love to have her experience one of the truly great musician songwriters of my era with me. Thanks for the opportunity.

  24. RonT February 12, 2015 at 3:13 pm #

    I would live to see Judy Collins on Sunday. What a compliment to the weekend.
    Listening for years, I would love to hear her live. Hers is music that you can
    understand the word to. Please pick me.

  25. John M February 12, 2015 at 3:38 pm #

    Boy I must have been left outside the loop. I didn’t even know she was coming to Portland.

    I have seen Carole King, but always missed out on the opportunity to see Judy Collins. Her rendition of Clouds and Send in the Clowns have made her a national treasure for people of my generation. Glad I wasn’t going anywhere this weekend if I am selected.

  26. E.A. February 12, 2015 at 4:27 pm #

    Please

  27. Carol Allen February 12, 2015 at 4:35 pm #

    You can send these two clowns in…!!!!!

    What a nice way to spend the weekend :)

  29. Carolyn Noblet February 12, 2015 at 6:38 pm #

    i’d really like the opportunity to see her performance. Her music has touched my soul. Driving by the Aladdin and seeing her name on the marque I Knew I wanted to be there. I do hope I have that opportunity. She has used her gifts well, hasn’t she?

  30. Cathy G. February 12, 2015 at 7:08 pm #

    I’ve been following Judy Collins since the 60’s. I like to take my grandson to see the music that shaped my life and watch his reaction…

  31. Cory February 12, 2015 at 8:47 pm #

    She so Sweet

  32. Jess February 12, 2015 at 9:29 pm #

    Because I grew up with her.

  33. Dwayne Sorensen February 12, 2015 at 9:34 pm #

    My Sweetheart Lela has worked so hard to recover from several setbacks in her life and I want to reward her for her courage, inspiration, and her amazing ability to stay positive in light of all that has happened.
    This style of music is everything she loves to listen to and I know she would be most excited to see this show.

  34. Miranda February 13, 2015 at 5:29 am #

    I’m not certain who she is, but her description sounds lovely. It would be an honor to experience her voice and song for an evening.
