Event Description

“Light of touch, fast of wit, copiously imaginative, and a musical scholar of the highest distinction, Toronto mandolin virtuoso pulls out all the stops”
Toronto Star

“To call Andrew Collins a master of the mandolin would be putting it mildly…. artfully arranged string music perhaps best described as ‘chambergrass’ shines through – 4/5 stars”
Exclaim! Magazine

“Boundaries? What boundaries? Mandolinist Andrew Collins ignores them all!”
Penguin Eggs
________________________________________

The mercurial, 5x JUNO-nominated/7x Canadian Folk Music Award winning mando maestro Andrew Collins finds himself – through no actual fault of his own – at the epicentre of Canada’s 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 folk, jazz, celtic, chambergrass, and swing, not to mention a dizzying number and energetic interplay of instruments on stage, Collins and Co. appear to live by the old adage, “idle hands are the devil’s workshop” likely keeping them just ahead of his grasp. Their dynamic genre hopping show is further propelled by Andrew’s captivating lead vocals and James’ soaring harmonies.

Saving Sleeping Beauty directed by Kenneth Cameron

When an angry fairy condemns the baby Princess Roslind to die on her 16th birthday, her parents beg Cerulean the Witch to save the child.

A fun new family musical by GLT’s own Kenneth Cameron.
