Her rendition of Joni Mitchell’s “Both Sides Now” from Collins’ 1967 album “Wildflowers” has been entered into the Grammy Hall of Fame. Collins’ 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.
In 2008, contemporary and classic artists such as Rufus Wainwright, Shawn Colvin, Dolly Parton, Joan Baez and Leonard Cohen honored Collins’ legacy with the compilation album “Born to the Breed: A Tribute to Judy Collins.”
Collins’ most recent collaboration as a singer-songwriter is the 2020 television special and album “Winter Stories” with Norwegian musician Jonas Fjeld and backed by American bluegrass group Chatham County Line.
