What's on

The Finn Collinson Band

Event details

The Finn Collinson Band seamlessly blend old and new music, 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, vocalist, tunesmith and educator. Shortlisted for the BBC Young Folk Award in 2018, he has toured extensively with various ensembles, making appearances at many of the UK’s major folk festivals.

Finn’s virtuosic band features Archie Churchill-Moss (accordion, guitar) and Evan Carson (bodhran, percussion). Combining their wealth of experience and creativity with a distinctive instrumentation, this small ensemble produces a pioneering and powerful sound.

The band’s repertoire is wonderfully varied, with tunes spanning an incredible 400 years of musical history, along with Finn’s own compositions. Their 2023 shows will showcase music from Finn’s new album The Threshold, released October 2022. The album demonstrates a diverse subject matter, ranging from the driving folk-rock of Victorian ghost story Jerry Bundler to the layered soundscapes and sparkling melodies of Big Smoke, inspired by the effects of climate change.

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.
