Sunday's line-up of our Different Folks weekend

Sunday 21 May

3pm: Shirley Collins and the Lodestar Band, Rattle on the Stovepipe and Brighton Morris

One of the most important voices in British Folk, singer and song collector Shirley Collins MBE was born in Hastings in 1935. Shirley was fascinated by folk songs growing up and immersed herself in the burgeoning folk scene. Following a field trip across the USA with Alan Lomax, where they recorded folk songs and blues, Shirley cemented her role at the forefront of the Folk Revival, recording over a dozen albums including the influential Folk Roots, New Routes. After losing her singing voice in the 1980s, Shirley returned to live performance in 2014. Since then, she has produced two acclaimed albums, Lodestar and Heart’s Ease.

8pm: Stick in the Wheel supported by Fire in her Eyes

East London's Stick In The Wheel explore folk, electronics, spoken word and intricate psychedelic guitar through their intense live shows. Their full-force reworkings of centuries old work-songs and texts speak to contemporary issues of class, and their relentless approach to questioning traditional music forms is matched only by the energy with which they play it. This special show will feature visuals from Zeroh.

Fire in Her Eyes are two sisters from London, Daniella and Natasha. They make progressive folk/ rock/ soul/ world music, characterised by catchy melodies and harmony. They will be playing with a full band for this show
