The Finn Collinson Band – Anteros Arts Foundation, Norwich

February 3

East Anglian contemporary folk musician Finn Collinson will be heading out on a nine-date English venue tour in February 2024. Together with his virtuosic band, Finn will introduce new material, along with favourites from critically-acclaimed studio albums The Threshold (2022) and Call To Mind (2019).
Although fundamentally folk in approach, Finn often draws on elements of historical music to sculpt his distinctive sound. Traditional folk tunes meet melodies from 17th and 18th century composers from the ‘classical’ realm, shaken up in striking new arrangements and brought up to date with Finn’s own compositions and trademark recorder style. If you think you know what a recorder sounds like, think again: the instrument has a thriving professional scene, but even within this, Finn’s style is distinctive and individual.
Joined by two of English folk’s most in-demand musicians, Evan Carson (bodhran, percussion) and Archie Churchill-Moss (accordion, guitar), Finn and his band produce a powerful and pioneering sound. With a respectful eye on the past, but a firm grounding in the present, Finn’s music transcends and defies expectations of both folk and early music, creating a captivating and wonderfully varied live show.
Finn is honoured to be part of a growing generation of creative young players on the English folk scene, and is humbly considered one of the genre’s foremost innovators on his chosen instrument of the recorder. Formerly shortlisted for the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award, Finn also performs with the busy ceilidh band Stroma and is in high demand as a session musician, composer and workshop leader.
