      It’s true: Judy Collins still has the multi-octave voice of an angel. And if you’ve never seen her in concert, you can rectify this error when she takes the stage of the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall on Friday night. Collins recently taped a concert at Dromoland Castle in Ireland—which will be coming to [...]
