Andrew, who is 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 shines through on guitar, mandolin, fiddle and mandola, and in-the-pocket James McEleney, holding it down on the bass, mandocello and vocals, together as The Andrew Collins Trio.

Showcasing a popular collision of acoustic roots, folk, newgrass and jazz, not to mention a dizzying number and energetic interplay of instruments on stage, The Andrew Collins Trio appear to live by the old adage, “idle hands are the devil’s workshop” likely keeping them just ahead of his grasp, melding multiple genres while tastefully showcasing each of their boundaries.
