child, Collins studied classical piano, making her public debut at the age of 13, performing a Concerto by Mozart. Judy later developed an interest in folk music
and had the fortune of meeting many musicians through her blind father, who
was a DJ for a Seattle radio station. Judy Collins received a Grammy Award for
Best Folk Performance or Folk Recording in 1968 for… “Both Sides Now”.
