The Ballad Of Shirley Collins

Dir. Rob Curry, Tim Plester, UK, 93 mins, 2017

  • Wed 22 Nov: 7.30pm

Shirley Collins was at the epicentre of the folk music revival during the 1960s and 70s, before a vocal disorder robbed her of her uniquely ancestral singing voice.

Granted intimate access to recording sessions for her first new album in almost four decades, and making adventurous use of a motherlode of seminal archive audio, The Ballad of Shirley Collins chronicles one woman’s gallant battle to rise phoenix-like from long silent ashes.
