Judy Collins returns to Café Carlyle, November 10-19
(Published: October 03, 2016)

Legendary singer-songwriter Judy Collins returns to Café Carlyle with with special guest, Ari Hest, November 10-19. Judy Collins' unique artistry has captivated audiences for over fifty years and landed her a spot in the Grammy Hall of Fame. Judy will perform her revered solo material as well as duets with Ari Hest. Judy and Ari released a stunning, collaborative album Silver Skies Blue earlier this year.

Performances will take place Tuesday - Friday at 8:45pm; and Saturday at 8:45pm & 10:45pm (November 12 only). Reservations made by phone at 212.744.1600 are $120 ($170 for premium seating, $85 for bar seating) Tuesday - Thursday and Saturday late show; $145 ($195 for premium seating, $95 for bar seating) on Friday and Saturday. Reservations can also made online via Ticketweb.Note that there is no show on November 8 (Election Day) or November 9. Café Carlyle is located in The Carlyle, A Rosewood Hotel (35 East 76th Street, at Madison Avenue).

Judy Collins has inspired audiences with sublime vocals, boldly vulnerable songwriting, personal life triumphs, and a firm commitment to social activism. The award-winning singer-songwriter is esteemed for her imaginative interpretations of traditional and contemporary folk standards and her own poetically poignant original compositions. In the 1960s, she evoked both the idealism and steely determination of a generation united against social and environmental injustices. Five decades later, her luminescent presence shines brightly as new generations bask in the glow of her iconic 50-album body of work, and heed inspiration from her spiritual discipline to thrive in the music industry for half a century. Judy Collins is as creatively vigorous as ever, writing, touring worldwide, and nurturing fresh talent. She is a modern day Renaissance woman who is also an accomplished painter, filmmaker, record label head, musical mentor, and an in-demand keynote speaker for mental health and suicide prevention. She continues to create music of hope and healing that lights up the world and speaks to the heart.

Silver Skies Blue marks a first for Judy: an album made with another artist, of songs co-written by her and a partner that were crafted and sung together. Judy Collins and Ari Hest first met backstage at a show, and a friendship and artistic relationship blossomed over one-off duets, a recording of the song "Strangers Again" for Judy's 2015 album, and now this full-length album debut and a joint Collins/Hest tour. Says Collins: "I have written songs since 1967 when Leonard Cohen asked me why I was not writing my own. Although I have written many since then, writing with Ari has been new and challenging. We started our writing sessions and soon began to find our way together. What an amazing journey! Each song has been a revelation of melody and lyric, each song a new discovery."

Over 11 original songs, Silver Skies Blue unfurls with a magnetic chemistry between Judy's legendary voice and Ari's deep, velvety voice. The songs effortlessly sway from energetic and pulsing - "Drifting Away" and "I Choose Love" - to haunting ballads that linger like the political "Run." This new album comes on the heels of Judy's 2015 effort Strangers Again which went on to become her highest charting album on the Billboard 200 in decades, and debuted at #1 on Amazon's Music chart. Collins has recently appeared on NPR's Weekend Edition, 'Later....With Jools Holland,' and headlined shows at The MET and Lincoln Center's Out of Doors series. Judy Collins has appeared everywhere from Sesame Street to HBO's Girls, performed at a presidential inauguration and released two live DVD/CD specials in the past 4 years which were also broadcast on PBS. She performs over 100 shows a year and 2016 is no different.

Over his 15-year career, Ari Hest has released eight albums, three EPs, and 52 in 2008, an innovative project whereby he wrote, recorded and released a new song every Monday for a full year. Ari's song "The Landlord" recently appeared in an episode of NPR's "All Things Considered". Ari also scored a film called Dreamriders in 2008 which won several independent film awards.

About Café Carlyle at The Carlyle, A Rosewood Hotel

Originally opened in 1955, Café Carlyle is New York City's bastion of classic cabaret entertainment, a place where audiences experience exceptional performers at close range in an exceedingly elegant setting. Since composer Richard Rodgers moved in as The Carlyle's first tenant, music has been an essential part of The Carlyle experience. No place is that more evident than in the Café Carlyle.

Café Carlyle is known for talents including Woody Allen, who regularly appears on Monday evenings to play with the Eddy Davis New Orleans jazz band. For three decades, Café Carlyle was synonymous with the legendary Bobby Short, who thrilled sell-out crowds for 36 years. His spirit lives on through the music at Café Carlyle.

Continuing the tradition of the 1930s supper club, Café Carlyle features original murals created by French artist Marcel Vert├Ęs, the Oscar-winning art director of the 1952 Moulin Rouge.
