Don McLean and Judy Collins both burst onto the American musical landscape in the 1960s with anthems that came to define a generation. In an extraordinary double bill at DCA, these folk-rock stars will showcase the inimitable performance styles that made them legends. Grammy Hall of Fame inductee McLean’s wistful tenor is as unmistakable as the nostalgic groove of American Pie or the languid lyricism of Vincent (Starry Starry Night). Judy Collins’ crystalline soprano sailed onto American airwaves with the megahit Both Sides, Now and remains iconic to this day, painting from an eclectic musical palette that includes folk, cabaret, pop, and show tunes. Together, Collins and McLean are unforgettable.
