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 been a contributor, having co-founded noteworthy Canadian bands like the Creaking String Quartet, the Foggy Hogtown Boys and, more recently, the Andrew Collins Trio. Comfortable on mandolin, fiddle, guitar, mandola, mandocello and vocals – Andrew is joined by fellow string guru, Mike Mezzatesta - who’s 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. On their newest release, And It Was Good, the trio continue their push into new territory, as they assault the 7 days of Creation, rendering each day’s creation story to musical fruition in this new, Chamber Grass disc. A collision of bluegrass, jazz, old-time, Celtic and classical, And It Was Good IS good, receiving rave reviews and winning them a 2016 Canadian Folk Music Award for Best Instrumental Group. No matter how hard you try, you won’t be able to put any box around what ACT does. And that’s the way they like it.
