YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Sunrise Entertainment & Western Reserve Folk Arts Association announced Stephen Stills and Judy Collins are coming to Powers Auditorium in the DeYor Performing Arts Center 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 15.

50 years ago, the singer and songwriters Stephen Stills and Judy Collins met each other. This summer, the two will celebrate the anniversary of their time together through a summer tour, which marks the first time ever Stills and Collins have been onstage together.

The two music legends will pull from their catalogs and debut songs from their upcoming album, due out fall of 2017.

Stills is known for his work with Buffalo Springfield, Crosby, Stills & Nash, and his solo work. In addition to “Suite: Judy Blue Eyes,” Stills is best known for the hits “For What It’s Worth” by Buffalo Springfield and “Love The One You’re With” from his solo debut, Stephen Stills. He’s a multi-instrumentalist, composer, and ranked #28 in Rolling Stone Magazine’s “The 100 Greatest Guitarists Of All Time.” He also has the added distinction of being the first artist to be inducted into the Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame twice in one night (for his work with CSN and Buffalo Springfield).

Collins is known for her eclectic palette as a solo artist, melding folk, rock, classical, and jazz into a singular aesthetic. Some of her biggest hits include “Both Sides Now”, “Send in the Clowns”, and “Amazing Grace”. She’s earned five Grammy nominations including one in 2017 and one Grammy win. Outside of music, Collins has published two memoirs, one novel and in 1975, was nominated for an Academy Award for the documentary “Antonia: A Portrait of the Woman”.
