Multiple Award-winning Virtuoso Trio to Perform at The Motley Kitchen, Thursday, October 18

Multiple Award-winning Virtuoso Trio to Perform at The Motley Kitchen, Thursday, October 18



Three amazing musicians, The Andrew Collins Trio will perform at the next Dinner & Show at The Motley Kitchen, Thursday October 18.


Andrew Collins, a five time JUNO nominee and seven time Canadian Folk Music Award- winner, is well known through his work with The Foggy Hogtown Boys, the Creaking Tree String Quartet and the Trio, itself. His wild inventive approach to folk, newgrass, jazz and chamber-oriented roots music makes it impossible to pin him down to one particular genre. The trio merges Andrew’s skills on mandolin, fiddle, guitar, mandola, mandocello and smooth vocals with the rich talents of Mike Mezzatesta (guitar, mandolin, fiddle, mandola) and James McEleney (bass, mandocello and vocals). Bending and blending genres, these musical shape shifters land somewhere between the re-imagined worlds of Béla Fleck and Newgrass invader, David Grisman.


Their new double album, Tongue & Groove has 11 vocal cuts (Tongue) and 11 instrumentals (Groove). It is a fine representation of what the band does best — spontaneity on stage and rapid-fire, improvisational instrumental exchanges. The Groove CD was just nominated for yet another CFMA for Instrumental Group of the Year.  Winners will be announced at the 2018 awards show in Calgary on November 30 and December 1.


Dinner and entertainment combined is $60.00 including HST. Show-only seats are $25.00 each. Doors open at 6:00 p.m. with the buffet dinner served at 6:30 p.m. and the show approximately from 7:30 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. Reserve now to assure good seats and dinner by calling 705-222-6685.


The Motley Kitchen is proud to present this series in collaboration with the Northern Lights Festival Boréal.
