Judy Collins, the 83-year-old singer-songwriter, isn’t ready to step away just yet. She brings her latest body of work to Clearwater's Bilheimer Capitol Theatre on Wednesday, Feb. 1.

We’re still a bit bummed that her tour with Stephen Stills a few years back skipped Tampa Bay entirely, but she’s performing her iconic "Wildflowers"album (no, not Tom Petty’s) from 1967 in full with an orchestra behind her.

The idea of an orchestra—no matter what the size is—on the Cap stage is very intriguing, considering how many Florida Orchestra gigs we’ve seen in larger rooms, but if Judy Blue Eyes is cool with it, you don’t dare question anything.
