Tak­ing sides: Judy Collins

Pasatiempo - - Random Acts -

Judy Collins has been play­ing mu­sic in the pub­lic eye for more than 62 years. She started as a clas­si­cal pi­anist but was swept up by the folk-mu­sic scene of the late 1950s and early ’60s, strum­ming her gui­tar on the streets of Green­wich Vil­lage as a busker. Now sev­enty-five years old, she’s still record­ing and per­form­ing: her last stu­dio al­bum, Bo­hemian, came out in 2011 and a live al­bum, Live in Ire­land, was re­leased ear­lier this year. Her big­gest hits — “Both Sides, Now,” writ­ten by Joni Mitchell, and Stephen Sond­heim’s “Send in the Clowns” — earned her a Grammy Award and a Grammy nom­i­na­tion, re­spec­tively, and will un­doubt­edly evoke many tears of nostal­gia from au­di­ence mem­bers when she plays them at the Len­sic Per­form­ing Arts Cen­ter (211 W. San Francisco St.) on Sun­day, Nov. 16, at 7 p.m. Tick­ets are $42 to $62; visit www.tick­etssantafe.org or call 505-988-1234. — J.L.
