Judy Collins: Winter Stories w/ Jonas Fjeld & Chatham County Line
About Judy Collins
Judy Collins, Chatham County Line, and Norway’s Jonas Fjeld perform songs from their new album, Winter Stories, at New York City’s premiere intimate performance space. Winter Stories is a collection of classics, new tunes, and a few surprises, featuring spirited lead vocal turns, breathtaking duets, and Collins’ stunning harmony singing. Album standouts include Collins evergreens “The Blizzard” and “Mountain Girl,” a re-recording of Jonas’s poignant “Angels In The Snow,” and a stunning rendition of Joni Mitchell’s “The River.” “The Blizzard” was originally written as a 7-minute opus, but later truncated for the album on which it appeared. On Winter Stories, fans can finally hear it recorded in its full majesty. The artists also cherry-picked songs they’ve longed to record throughout the years, including Jimmy Webb’s “The Highwaymen,” which Collins has performed live with Stephen Stills, and Stan Rodger’s “North West Passage.” For the sessions, Fjeld contributed the newly-penned “Frozen North,” and the stunning title track which features the masterful vocal interlace of Collins and Fjeld. These performances are part of Judy Collins’ 2019 Vanguard Award & Residency at Joe’s Pub.
