One of the 20th Century’s most important singers, Shirley Collins stood at the epicentre of the folk music scene during the 1960’s and 1970’s. However, she lost her voice in mysterious circumstances and retired from musical life, regaining her voice only when she was 80. This film of loss and redemption will be followed by a Q&A session with the film director and a recorded musical performance.
