From the Publisher's Desk: She took us over the rainbow and back

Sharing a special moment with Judy after she signed "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" for Kayla. The Daily Triplicate/Rick Postal
I’ve been a fan of Judy Collins for over 45 years, so when I heard she was performing in Crescent City, I had to see her. But I’ll admit I was a little skeptical. I live by the mantra “there’s no going back,” because I’ve usually been disappointed when I’ve tried to relive some fabulous moment from my past.

In 8th grade, my classmates Jane and Janet taught themselves to play guitar and sing in harmony. At lunch hour they sang folk songs, which made them very cool. One of their songs was “A Maid of Constant Sorrow,” which was on Judy Collins’ debut album in 1961. Later in high school Jane paired up with Paul and the couple played in coffee houses. My friends and I often went to hear them sing the songs made popular by Ian and Sylvia, Peter, Paul and Mary, Pete Seeger and, of course, Judy Collins.
