Andrew Collins goes track by track through Love Away The Hate, April 14

Andrew Collins will head over the border from Toronto Thursday afternoon, April 14, to go track by track through his new album, Love Away The Hate. Folk & Beyond airs Thursday afternoon from 4-7 (edt) at 91.1 FM and streaming at wtju.net.

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 seriously noteworthy Canadian bands like the Creaking Tree String Quartet, the Foggy Hogtown Boys and, more recently, his namesake Trio. That’s not to mention the fact that this prolific, robust performer – comfortable on mandolin, fiddle, guitar, mandola and mandocello – composes, produces, arranges, writes and teaches across multiple genres, including a popular collision of folk, jazz, bluegrass, celtic, and classical.
