UPCOMING! Andrew Collins Trio + NDG + Li'l Andy at Divan Orange | March 7th


Andrew Colins Trio
As a solo artist and founding member of some of Canada's most celebrated string bands, Andrew Collins is at the centre of a burgeoning Canadian acoustic music scene. He is a prolific composer, performer, educator and accomplished multi-instrumentalist. Andrew plays mandolin, mandola, mandocello, guitar, and fiddle, deftly navigating across the bluegrass, old-time, jazz, blues, swing, Celtic and classical traditions.

Li'l Andy
It was nearly 5 years ago that son writing and country boy Andrew McClellan left his hometown of Wakefield, Quebec for bright lights of Montreal. There, at the tender age of 22, Andy released his first full-length alum, the self-produced and self-recorded Tombstones & Arcades \. A bunch of people bought it and seemed to like it. The Montreal Mirror hailed the album's "savvy sense of humour and classic country stylings seamlessly fused with newfangled electric instruments." and the CBC dug the band's "knack for packing the entire tear-jerking history of country music into one sucker-punch to the gut" (All in a Weekend). So, after all that, Li'l Andy & Karaoeke Cowboy toured the album, appearing on the same stages as Steve Earle, Neko Case, Nick Cave, Calexico and The Sadies and appearing at the Edmonton Folk Festival, NXNE, Canadian Music Week, and the Pop Montreal festival.

Notre Dame De Grass
While staying true to the conservative sensibility of bluegrass music, Notre Dame de Grass calls upon the deep well of North American folk idioms to inform their work. Featuring strong vocal harmonies and high calibre instrumental musicianship, a Notre Dame de Grass concert is a unique tour de force.
