Collins has recorded 50 albums in a five-decade career, earning multiple Grammy Awards, including one for her rendition of "Send in the Clowns.' For these holiday shows, she will be joined by Norwegian singer-songwriter Jonas Fjeld, along with special guests Chatham County Line, who will open the show with a bluegrass set and join Collins and Fjeld for their performance.
Folk music may be regionally derived, but it's always universally resonant. Case in point the folk album Winter Stories
, to be released November 8th
, a comfy collection of seasonal and emotionally evocative songs by an unlikely gathering of artists. The album lineup boasts the triple threat of iconic folk singer-songwriter Judy Collins, critically-acclaimed Norwegian folk artist Jonas Fjeld, and masterful bluegrass band Chatham County Line.
"I knew Jonas and Chatham County Line would be a great fit with me," Judy says. "The language of music overarches everything, including geography. When we came together in the studio, we found we could speak to each other in a way that was compatible and nuanced." Jonas adds: "What bonded us was a shared love of great songs."
