Judy Collins on Spectrum West November 16, 2017


Singer-songwriter Judy Collins has an upcoming performance in Menomonie and joins host Al Ross on Spectrum West Thursday, November 16, 2017 which airs on Wisconsin Public Radio’s Ideas Network at 10 a.m. on 88.3 WHWC-FM/ Menomonie-Eau Claire and 88.7 WRFW-FM/ River Falls. The program will also highlight a Chippewa County author and a film series in Shell Lake.


Ross welcomes Judy Collins, who has been recording and performing for audiences for over 50 years, to share her current and future career plans, including her upcoming collaborations with other artists. Collins will be taking the stage at a sold-out concert at the Mabel Tainter Center for the Arts in Menomonie, November 19, and has been booked for another show there on May 22.
