Andrew Collins is a prolific composer, performer, educator, vocalist and accomplished multi-instrumentalist. While mainly known as a mandolin player he is right at home on the mandola, mandocello, guitar and fiddle as well, deftly navigating across the bluegrass, old-time, jazz, blues, swing, Celtic and classical traditions. Last season, Andrew played in our Cafe Series as a member of Annie Lou's ensemble, but in the newest phase of his career, he is now fronting his own trio. He's joined by multi-instrumentalist Mike Mezzatesta (mando family, guitar and fiddle) and James Mceleney (upright bass). With such illustrious company, Andrew has continued his defiant experimentation with traditional string band music. The trio's debut release A Play On Words won them a Canadian Folk Music Award for "Instrumental Group of the Year".
