eTown hosts Nick and Helen Forster welcome back the legendary Judy Collins, along with eTown newcomer Ari Hest, for a very special live radio show taping featuring lots of great music and insightful conversation.
Judy Collins has thrilled audiences worldwide with her unique blend of interpretative folksongs and contemporary themes. Her impressive career has spanned more than 50 years. At 13, Judy Collins made her public debut performing Mozart’s Concerto for Two Pianos but it was the music of such artists as Woody Guthrie and Pete Seeger, as well as the traditional songs of the folk revival, that sparked Judy’s love of lyrics. She soon moved away from the classical piano and began her lifelong love with the guitar.
Now 71, Judy is still writing, performing, and nurturing fresh talent. She plays 80 to 100 dates a year around the country, and continues to be a relentlessly creative spirit, a modern day Renaissance woman of sorts who is also an accomplished painter, filmmaker, record label head, musical mentor, and an advocate for mental health and suicide prevention. She creates music of hope and healing that lights up the world and speaks to the heart, and we are very excited to have her back with us in eTown.
Joining Judy on the bill for this taping is up-and-coming singer/songwriter Ari Hest, who will make his first appearance on the show. Whether light-hearted or dark and intense, Ari’s practical lyrics mold seamlessly with his grainy voice and quiet confidence to create an earnest, engaging delivery and one-of-a-kind sound. His music has been featured on numerous television shows including Private Practice, Army Wives and One Tree Hill. Hest has toured worldwide in support of his records, and has already built the kind of loyal fanbase that will continue to propel his music forward. Expect to get to know him much better during his visit to eTown.
