Fledgling has announced the release of a new Shirley Collins
album:
"Shirley Collins has been one of our dearest friends and loyal supporters ever since Fledg'ling Records began in 1994. We are thrilled beyond words that she has returned to recording after 38 years. Lodestar is released today, Friday 4th November, on the Domino label. It is an absolutely wonderful album - austere, full of foreboding and stunningly beautiful. Undoubtedly one of the finest recordings of the year.

"… picking her way back across almost a century, finding for herself the traditional heart of each song… What comes through is sincerity, purity of instinct, and a tremendous depth of feeling." Alan Lomax
Fledg'ling has helped to keep much of Shirley's back catalogue in print over the past twenty years. During November we are celebrating the release of Lodestar with some special offers. The perfect opportunity to fill the gaps in your music collection, or to give as splendid gifts for friends"

LODESTAR
01. Awake Awake /The Split Ash Tree/ May Carol /Southover
02. The Banks of Green Willow

Weird... I was literally just thinking about her a few minutes ago..
mulling over how significant an influence Shirley & Dolly Collins - Love, Death & The Lady LP
has been on my approach to music.....

That's fantastic news. Apart from Love, Death and the Lady, my most treasurable Shirley albums are No Roses, Anthems in Eden and a collection called Fountain of Snow. Magic.

Interesting program on National Public Radio. Take a listen:
    https://www.npr.org/sections/allsongs/2016/11/04/500547697/after-38-years-of-silence-a-legend-of-folk-music-sings

    Imagine being a singer — in this case, a singer of traditional British folk songs and murder ballads, songs of love, hate, revenge, redemption and tragedy. And as the singer of these songs, you get pretty well known in the circles of folk music in the 1960s and 1970s.

    Now, imagine a broken heart robs you of your ability to sing. For 38 years, your voice — once beautiful — falls silent.

    This is the story of the great Shirley Collins.

    But this tragic tale has a happy epilogue, because Shirley Collins is finally singing again. She has a new record called Lodestar and she is our guest on All Songs Considered....
