55 years ago Shirley Collins began a career as a folk singer, touring and recording more than 20 albums.
But when she suffered a broken heart she lost the ability to sing - and had to stop performing altogether.
Now at the age of 81, she's back and appearing at the Brighton Festival. Andy Dickenson reports.
