Hirschfeld might draw Judy Collins as a halo of white hair, doe eyes, and a long black line curving, unbroken, to cradle her guitar. She's the image of unstudied elegance, natural, and despite the artist's thanks to Elizabeth Arden, soulfully organic. Judy Collins has been performing for 57 years in what she deems 'the second oldest profession.' Many of us came of age with her experimental, rallying lead.
