************HUGE EVENT with SHIRLEY COLLINS AT THE SOUTH BANK CENTRE IN LONDON IN MARCHThis press release has been issued by the South Bank Centre in London:-SHIRLEY COLLINS' 'FOLK ROOTS, NEW ROUTES'25 - 30 March 2008, Southbank CentreFolk Roots, New Routes - a five-day series of performances and talks in the Queen Elizabeth Hall and Purcell Room programmed by the renowned and much-loved folk singer Shirley Collins. The America Over The Water talk in the Purcell Room (a fascinating account of her journeys with Alan Lomax) was a surprise hit event of 2006. The diverse line-up of expected guests will attest to an influence and an address book that extends far beyond the world of folk music.Look out for more details of these talks/concerts/performances etc as they emerge. There will certainly be full details in these circulars. Here's what The Guardian had to say about it in their New Year's Day "What to Look Forward to in 2008" supplement.Shirley Collins: Folk Roots, New RoutesThe grande dame of UK folk - alas now retired from live performance herself - curates a fascinating-sounding string of events, collectively named after her legendary, ground-breaking 1965 album with errant folk guitarist Davy Graham. Performances and talks - including Collins' own account of her journeys with legendary US folklorist and song-collector Alan Lomax, America Over the Water - are promised, along with a diverse line up that "extends far beyond the world of folk music".South Bank Centre, London, March 25-30 (08716632500).
