The Ballad of Shirley Collins

The Ballad of Shirley Collins

Details

One of the 20th century’s most important singers, Shirley Collins stood at the epicentre of the folk music scene during the 1960s and ‘70’s.  However, she lost her voice in mysterious circumstances, and retired from musical life.  This documentary explores the story behind the icon, and chronicles Shirley’s battle at the grand old age of 80, to rediscover that voice she lost so many years previously.  Here is a film about loss and redemption.  A film about sacrifice, healing and rebirth.  A film which suggests that, during these turbulent, untethered times, we might just need Shirley Collins now more than ever. 

Followed by a Q&A session and recorded music performance.
