After a 50-year career, singer Judy Collins, now 76, isn’t thinking about retirement

In fact, the Grammy-winning folk artist, best known for her recordings of “Both Sides Now” and “Send in the Clowns,” has a new album, “Silver Skies Blue” due out in June with dozens of upcoming tour dates across the U.S. and abroad.

You can catch her locally when she performs at the Suffolk Theater in Riverhead this St. Patrick’s Day as part of Long Island Winterfest.

“For any artist, you don’t stop doing what you do. If you’re a painter, you don’t stop painting,” Collins said in a phone interview last week. “I just happen to do it in public more than most people do.” (more…)
