At age 10, Collins moved to Denver with her family, and she gave her debut performance playing piano with the Denver Businessmen's Orchestra when she was 13. After graduating high school, she began her career as a folk musician performing at pubs and coffeehouses in Boulder, Colorado. She eventually made her way to New York City's Greenwich Village, where she established herself as one of the stars of the early 1960s folk scene. Collins probably is best known for her classic 1968 cover of Joni Mitchell 's "Both Sides Now" and her 1975 rendition of Stephen Sondheim 's "Send in the Clowns."
Other artists who will be inducted into Colorado Music Hall of Fame alongside Collins include fellow folk musicians Bob Lind and The Serendipity Singers .
