The Finn Collinson Band seamlessly blend old and new music with distinctive instrumentation,
creating a refreshingly innovative take on contemporary folk. Their dynamic live show is
meticulously crafted yet endearingly spontaneous, respectfully traditional yet strikingly
modern, and reassuringly familiar yet spellbindingly imaginative.
Finn is widely regarded as a ground-breaking recorder player on the English folk scene, as
well as a distinguished guitarist, tunesmith and educator. Shortlisted for the BBC Young Folk
Award in 2018, he has toured extensively with various ensembles, including appearances at
many of the UK’s major folk festivals including The Sidmouth Folk Festival, Broadstairs Folk
Week and FolkEast.
Together with Finn on recorders, guitars and vocals, the band features leading virtuosos
Emma Beach (oboes, vocals), Archie Churchill-Moss (accordion, guitar) and Evan Carson
(bodhran, percussion). Combining their wealth of experience and creativity, this small
ensemble produces a pioneering and powerful sound.
With music that will inspire you to dance in the aisles and pause for reflection, a performance
from The Finn Collinson Band is sure to enthral with its musical chemistry and dynamic energy.
