Collins made her recording debut in 1961, and is one of the greatest folk musicians of her generation. She is still active both as an artist and as a social activist and has made her own versions of songs by Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen among others. She is perhaps best known for Both Sides Now, a song, although written by Joni Mitchell, first recorded by Collins. Her focus is on good stories and gripping melodies and she has fallen for Norwegian songs including Jonas Fjeld’s Engler i snøen (,Angels in the Snow,) and Thomas Dybdahl’s From Grace. The latter is included on Judy Collin’s duet album released last autumn. Judy Collins has performed a number of times with various symphony orchestras, and on this occasion at Grieghallen she will be joined by KORK (The Norwegian Radio Orchestra). Judy Collins vocal, guitar Russell Walden piano Thomas Dybdahl vocal The Norwegian Radio Orchestra (KORK) Ingar Bergby conductor Sponsored by Widerøe Thomas Dybdahl has released six albums, sold over 400.000 records, won three Norwegian Grammys and fills concert halls both in Norway and Europe. ’That someone who has made a career of finding good songs and making them her own, has found my song is extraordinary,’ Dybdahl has said. Both Sides Now is one of his all-time favourite songs. 008 #FE STSPILLEN E16 W W W.F IB.N O 009
