Andrew Collins Trio CD Release

The mercurial, 5x JUNO-nominated/7x CFMA winning mando maestro Andrew Collins finds himself - through no actual fault of his own - at the epicentre of Canada's burgeoning acoustic/roots music scene. He didn't invent it - but he's certainly a major contributor, having co-founded seriously noteworthy Canadian bands like the Creaking String Quartet, the Foggy Hogtown Boys and, more recently, the Andrew Collins Trio.

As Collins gathers up innumerable awards and nominations by these various ensembles, Collins, who's comfortable on mandolin, fiddle, guitar, mandola and mandocello - is zeroing in on the work he does with his beloved trio: fellow string guru Mike Mezzatesta, whose versatility and mastery shine through on guitar, mandolin, fiddle and mandola, and in-the-pocket James McEleney, holding it down on the bass, mandocello and vocals.

Showcasing a popular collision of bluegrass, folk, jazz, swing, and classical, not to mention a dizzying number of instruments on stage, Collins and Co. appear to live by the old adage, "idle hands are the devil's workshop" - all the more because And It Was Good even highlights the Creation story itself - likely keeping him just ahead of the devil's grasp.

On their new offering, "And It Was Good", the Trio push into new territory, brilliantly rendering each of the 7 days to musical fruition on this Chambergrass disc.
