Judy Collins Performance to Benefit St. Martin's Hospitality Center

Remember the songs Both Sides Now, Send in the Clowns and Turn, Turn, Turn?  Can you remember what popular artist sang those songs?  If you said Judy Collins, give yourself a pat on the back.   

And did you know that Judy Collins is coming to Albuquerque to perform for a fundraiser for St. Martin's Hospitality Center?  The concert is on Sept. 3 at Sandia Resort and Casino.  All ticket proceeds and a percentage of CD sales will go to St. Martin's to directly benefit individuals and families who are homeless.

Tickets are $25-$75.  You can find the link to purchase them on our website ( or go directly to Ticketmaster.  You can also purchase tickets at the Sandia Resort & Casino box office, so you won’t have to pay the Ticketmaster surcharge.  For more info, contact Karen at

Famous for her incredible voice and her songwriting, Ms. Collins has a long history of activism, including writing the ballad "Che" in honor of Che Guevera and testifying at the 1969 "Chicago Seven" trial, where she sang Pete Seeger's Where Have All the Flowers Gone? before judge and jury. Her son, Clark, committed suicide in 1992 at the age of 33 after a long bout with depression and addiction; since his death she has become a strong advocate of suicide prevention. She is currently a representative for UNICEF and campaigns on behalf of the abolition of landmines.

See you at the concert on Sept. 3!
