Legendary songstress Judy Collins was a piano prodigy by age 13, and as she came of age, she used her music to rail against social and environmental problems. She’s known for reinterpreting traditional and contemporary folk music standards to create rich, insightful poetic-like songs about life’s ups and downs. Woody Guthrie and Pete Seeger influenced her with their use of storytelling through songs about hard luck people. Collins, in turn, inspired others—Stephen Stills (Crosby Stills Nash) wrote the classic song “Suite: Judy Blue Eyes while breaking up with Collins. Collins’ version of Stephen Sondheim’s “Send in the Clowns” garnered her the Song of the Year Grammy Award in ’76. Opening is Ari Hest. 7:30 p.m. Carnegie Library Music Hall, 510 E. 10th St., Munhall.
