Judy Collins has announced a new album, in collaboration with Norwegian singer-songwriter Jonas Fjeld and bluegrass band Chatham County Line.
Winter Stories will be released by Wildflower/Cleopatra on November 15.
The album is a collection of new tunes and classics, including Judy Collins evergreens “The Blizzard” (now extended to seven minutes) and “Mountain Girl”, plus a re-recording of Fjeld’s “Angels In The Snow” and a rendition of Joni Mitchell’s “The River.”
“I knew Jonas and Chatham County Line would be a great fit with me,” says Collins. “The language of music overarches everything, including geography. When we came together in the studio, we found we could speak to each other in a way that was compatible and nuanced.” Adds Fjeld: “What bonded us was a shared love of great songs.”
