The Ballad of Shirley Collins
Directors: Tim Plester, Rob Curry. Featuring: Shirley Collins. UK 2017. 94 mins.
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 mother lode of seminal archive audio, The Ballad Of Shirley Collins chronicles one woman’s gallant battle to rise phoenix-like from long silent ashes.
Contains infrequent strong language.
