Some of you have already seen Andrew perform in Humph Hall last year when he appeared with the fantastic Annie Lou Band!

Andrew Collins Trio

Now he is returning to Australia and to Humph Hall with his own band.

Coming to Australia with Andrew:

Andrew Collins (mandolin family, guitar & fiddle)
Mike Mezzatesta (mandolin family, guitar & fiddle)
James Mceleney (upright bass)

For the last fifteen years, Andrew Collins has been at the forefront of a new acoustic movement that pushes the boundaries of traditional music. As a solo recording artist and a founding member of the Creaking Tree String Quartet and the Foggy Hogtown Boys, he has earned five Canadian Folk Music Awards and five Juno nominations. In keeping with his ongoing exploration of the “Chamber Grass” genre, Andrew has teamed up with Mike Mezzatesta and James McEleney to form the Andrew Collins Trio.

Invoking the traditional sounds of the past while evoking a distinctly contemporary aesthetic, the Andrew Collins Trio demonstrate their compelling musical versatility as they trade off on mandolin, mandola, mandocello, fiddle, guitar, and bass.

Their debut release “A Play On Words” is receiving rave reviews and has garnered a 2014 Canadian Folk Music Award nomination for instrumental band of the year.
