NEW YORK, NY.- Christie's presents the fall sale of Fine Musical Instruments on October 8 highlighted by a selection of instruments from legendary American singer-songwriter Judy Collins. Comprising of the 8 guitars, 7 of them by C.F. Martin and Company, and an autoharp, this collection reflects Collins’s extensive recording and performing history from the early 1960’s to the 21st century.

The collection includes a 1939 D-28 by C.F. Martin and Company (estimate: $20,000-30,000), a guitar that Judy played extensively between 1968 to 1977 and recorded hits such as Who Knows Where The Time Goes and Whales and Nightingales; a 2002 12-string HD12-35SJC by C.F. Martin and Company (estimate: $2,000-4,000), a contemporary guitar custom made for Judy where she chose the wood and the pearl inlayed wildflower to the neck; and an autoharp by Oscar Schmidt, circa 1970 (estimate: $1,000-2,000), an instrument where she recorded The Fisherman Song and also performed with it on Sesame Street in 1972.

Judy Collins’s impressive musical career has spanned for more than 50 years. She made her public debut at the age of 13 as a classical pianist and released her first album in 1961, A Maid of Constant Sorrow, at the age of 22. A Grammy Award winner for Send in the Clowns, she is also renowned for hits such as Both Sides Now, Turn, Turn, Turn, In My Life, Whales & Nightingales, Running for My Life, Home Again, Christmas at the Biltmore among many others. She has collaborated with talented artists including Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen, and Randy Newman. Judy Collins, now 71, is still writing, performing, and plays 80 to 100 dates a year around the world.
