Presidents' favourite to play NCH
Judy Collins is one of the great icons of American music, whose recent projects included albums of songs by Leonard Cohen and Bob Dylan, will play the National Concert Hall in Dublin on February 15, following a concert in Belfast the previous night.
She was the first major artist to make popular the songs of Joni Mitchell with Both Sides Now and her own hit Amazing Grace. She is the only artist to have performed at the inaugurations of two US presidents, John F Kennedy and Bill Clinton. Further information from the National Concert Hall, see www.nch.ie.
