Shirley's Forthcoming Events

Charleston Farm, East Sussex

Wednesday 23rd September 8.00pm

"Traditional songs and stories are closely allied. Who better to explore the connection than Shirley Collins, legend in English folk music and local heroine, who turns 80 this year? In the 60s she helped kick-start the folk song revival. Her stock in trade is the classic traditional song book. Her book about the Sussex landscape and song lyrics in relation to places they celebrate and the people who wrote them is published this autumn. In conversation with editor, Justin Hopper."
