Apr 25th, 2016Press Release from ArtsQuest Center at SteelStacks

BETHLEHEM, PA—GRAMMY winner Judy Collins, The Subdudes, rising indie act Wild Child, the Robert Cray Band and rock & folk group The Ballroom Thieves are the latest acts announced to perform at the ArtsQuest Center at SteelStacks, 101 Founders Way. Tickets for all five shows go on sale to ArtsQuest members starting Tues., April 26, 10 a.m., and the public Fri., April 29, 10 a.m.; they’ll be available at steelstacks.org and 610-332-3378.

On Oct. 21, it’s an evening with the one and only Judy Collins. Collins’ debut album, A Maid of Constant Sorrow, was released in 1961, but it was her cover of Joni Mitchell‘s “Both Sides, Now,” the lead single from her 1967 album Wildflowersthat gave Collins international prominence. The single hit the Top 10 on the Billboard Pop Singles chart and won Collins her first GRAMMY for Best Folk Performance. 

Collins experienced the biggest success of her career with her cover of Stephen Sondheim‘s “Send in the Clowns” from her best-selling 1975 album Judith. The single charted on the Billboard Pop Singles chart in 1975 and again in 1977, spending 27 weeks on the charts and earning her a GRAMMY nomination for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance, as well as a GRAMMY for Sondheim for Song of the Year.

On July 21, the Musikfest Café welcomes indie powerhouse Wild Child. Hailing from Texas, Wild Child has spent the past year stepping into the spotlight, playing major music festivals like Austin City Limits, Firefly and Bonnaroo.  The Austin six-piece band’s Spotify, Soundcloud and YouTube streams have been wildly popular, eclipsing over 10 million listens. The group’s lead single, “Crazy Bird,” from its second album, The Runaround, debuted on Specialty Radio at No. 1, fueled by an electrifying performance on The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson.
