The Ballad of Shirley Collins (film screening)

The Ballad of Shirley Collins plus a Q&A with directors Tim Plester and Rob Curry
Widely regarded as the 20th century’s most important singer of English traditional song, Shirley Collins stood at the epicentre of the folk music scene during the 1960s and 1970s. However, in 1980 she lost her voice in mysterious circumstances, and was forced to retire from musical life. Rob Curry and Tim Plester’s documentary sets out to explore 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.
