Mandolin-maestro Andrew Collins and his fellow Trio string-meisters are five-time Canadian Grammy nominees and seven-time Canadian Folk Music Award winners…and now they’ve just borrowed a page from basic carpentry, hitting the nail on the head with their new, double disc set (one disc all instrumentals, the other all w/ vocals), cleverly called “Tongue & Groove”.
You may already know the wildly exploratory Andrew Collins through his work with The Foggy Hogtown Boys, the equally mind-bending Creaking Tree String Quartet or the Trio itself – but you’ll never put a label on him for his approach to folk, newgrass, jazz and even some chamber-oriented roots music.
Bending and blending genres, these musical shape shifters land somewhere between the re-imagined worlds of Béla Fleck and Newgrass invader, David Grisman.
