Collins is known for her imaginative interpretations of traditional and contemporary folk standards. Her rendition of Joni Mitchell’s “Both Sides Now” was entered into the Grammy Hall of Fame, and she won “Song of the Year” at the 1975 Grammy Awards with her intimate version of “Send in the Clowns” by Stephen Sondheim.

Collins’ landmark 1967 album, Wildflowers, includes a collection of originals alongside songs by not-yet household names such as Joni Mitchell and Leonard Cohen, as well as selections by Jacques Brel and Francesco Landini.

Now in her sixth decade as a singer and songwriter, Collins continues to create new music. Her 29th studio album, Spellbound, was released on February 25, 2022, and it marks the first time that she wrote all the songs on one of her albums.

Tickets for the concert are on sale and range from $35 to $75.
