After being one of the most significant figures in the English Folk Revival of the 1960s then not releasing an album in 38 years, 2016's Lodestar was a musical miracle, and there's no stopping Shirley Collins now.
Recorded at Metway in Brighton, Heart's is as compelling and original as Shirley’s great albums from the 60s and 70s, with traditional songs from England and the US, four non-traditional tracks with a burst of experimentation that hints at possible new directions to come.
Lodestar brought Shirley’s widely missed voice back to fans with subsequent heralded live shows at London’s Barbican, The Roundhouse and Cambridge Folk Festival.
Heart’s Ease in turn, named after a wild pansy, also follows the release of Collins’ second book All In The Downs which won the Penderyn Prize and the documentary The Ballad of Shirley Collins.
