Judy Collins has long inspired audiences with sublime vocals, vulnerable songwriting and a firm commitment to social activism. In the 1960s, she evoked the idealism and steely determination of a generation united against social and environmental injustices. Five decades later, new generations bask in the glow of her iconic body of work and heed inspiration from her spiritual discipline to thrive in the music industry for half a century.
