MOORE & O'REILLY JUDY COLLINS Judy Collins - 2012 Eugene O'Neill Lifetime Award Winner But that dissipates at the first mention of her father, Charles Collins, a legendary radio host in Denver where Judy spent much of her formative years. That's why the Irish American Writers & Artists will bestow the fourth annual Eugene O'Neill Lifetime Achievement Award on Judy Collins tonight. It will be given as much in recognition of the promise that lies ahead as for the trailblazing life of achievement she's led. Collins album covers The long legacy of a true artist and trailblazer. As befits the honoree of an organization set up to pursue progressive goals shortly before the 2008 Presidential election, Judy Collins has long stood for civil rights and an ongoing insistence that every woman, man and child on this planet deserves to be treated with human dignity. Perhaps her finest quality is her generosity to other artists - despite being a master songwriter she has never stopped championing the talents of Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Jacques Brel, Randy Newman and perhaps, most famously, Leonard Cohen. Had she not persuaded a reluctant Mr. Cohen to perform for the first time at Town Hall in 1967, and then insisted that he return after he fled the spotlight with an extreme bout of stage fright, we would all have been the poorer. But that's Judy Collins for you. The tales of her intuitive kindness are legendary. The Irish American Writers and Artists are honored to grant the Fourth Annual Eugene O'Neill Lifetime Achievement Award to our sister, Judy Collins.
