Fifty years ago, singer-songwriter Stephen Stills met singer-songwriter Judy Collins, known for her piercing ocean blue eyes. Their tumultuous love affair would later be immortalized by Stills with his composition, "Suite: Judy Blue Eyes," performed by Crosby, Stills & Nash on their landmark debut album. From there, both artists would go on to shape modern music with visionary approaches, but Stills and Collins' short fiery union remains a transformative era for the two artists.
This fall, the two icons of folk will celebrate the golden anniversary of their formative relationship by taking the stage together for the very first time. The two music legends will pull from their rich catalogs, debut songs from their upcoming album and share warm and intimate stories from their journeys.
In addition to his solo work, Stills is also known for his work with Buffalo Springfield and, of course, Crosby, Stills & Nash. In addition to "Suite: Judy Blue Eyes," Stills is also known for the hits, "For What It’s Worth" by Buffalo Springfield and "Love The One You’re With" from his self-titled, solo debut.
Collins is known for her eclectic palette as a solo artist, melding folk, rock, classical, and jazz into a singular aesthetic. In 2017, Collins’ album, Silver Skies Blue, received a Grammy nomination for Best Folk Album. It marked her first Grammy nomination in 40 years. Collins won a Grammy for Best Folk Performance in 1969.
Outside of music, Collins has published two memoirs, one novel, and, in 1975, was nominated for an Academy Award for the documentary Antonia: A Portrait of the Woman. Collins is also a lifelong activist.
