Shirley Collins


Hastings-born veteran folk singer.

The long-established folk singer from Hastings performs in accompaniment to her album Lodestar.

Nestling unobtrusively in the Warwick Arts Centre listings is an extraordinary event: a live performance by a reclusive but revered folk singer who abandoned the limelight after being diagnosed with dysphonia, a form of muteness, in the late 1970s. She roared back into contention last year with the release of the starkly beautiful album Lodestar.
