Shirley Elizabeth Collins MBE (born 5 July 1935) is an English folk singer who was a significant contributor to the English Folk Revival of the 1960s and 1970s. She often performed and recorded with her sister Dolly, whose accompaniment on piano and portative organ created unique settings for her sister's plain, austere singing style. Shirley Collins and her older sister, Dolly, grew up in the Hastings area of East Sussex in a family which kept alive a great love of traditional song.

The most immediately shocking thing about Shirley Collins’ seventh album is that it exists at all. Collins may be one of the folk revival’s most revered song collectors and vocalists, but for more than 30 years she was famous for not singing at all. She last released a new album in 1978, by which point her voice was already, she claimed, letting her down in the wake of a messy split from her husband, fellow musician Ashley Hutchings. My voice got damaged, my ego got damaged, and my heart and everything, she said, years later. And I stopped being able to sing

An Interview with Shirley Collins. by Dave Freak 16 March, 2017. The new millennium has witnessed a myriad of surprise returns by ‘lost’ artists, from Vashti Bunyan and Nic Jones to Rodriguez, Bill Fay, Linda Perhacs, and countless others. But few returns have been as surprising as Shirley Collins’. While her talks and the publication of her memoirs have ensured she wasn’t completely forgotten, the loss of her singing voice in the early ’80s ensured the folk revival doyen would never hold a tune again. Or so she, and everyone else thought.
