Shirley will be reading from her new book coming in March from strange attractor and also playing live.

If you haven't seen 'The Ballad of Shirley Collins' film yet then you can view it for free tomorrow here


Thanks for this. She is a great favorite (saw her at Shackleford Folk Club with Dolly and Ashley donkeys years ago). She represented he Sussex folk tradition and especially the works of the Copper family brilliantly but also embraced folk-rock and recorded probably the best version of Robin Williamson's God Dog. The album Amaranth perfectly captures both sides of her work.
