The Ballad of Shirley Collins

On June 22nd at the Cafe Otto in Dalston, London, a special event was held to raise awareness of a very special Kickstarter campaign. Set up by Tim Plester & Rob Curry, known for their film The Way of the Morris, the launch featured music, film and an impassioned speech by Shirley. Tim & Rob are aiming to make a film loosely based on Shirley's autobiography, 'America, Over the Water. The museum lent its support too and everyone was delighted, when a month later £31,095 was pledged to help get the film of Shirley's life made. A film about the project can be seen here -
