Finn Collinson is a recorder player and folk musician from East Anglia. Barely in his twenties, Finn is already gaining a reputation as one of the foremost exponents of the recorder on the English folk scene.
Finn’s diverse performance credits range from a solo performance with the London International Orchestra at Cadogan Hall to national tours with various folk outfits. Perhaps best known for his previous work with the contemporary folk duo Shorelark, Finn has also appeared on stage with singer-songwriter Tilly Moses, and has guested with Emily Askew’s Ceilidh Factor and the recorder band Zero Gravity. He is a student at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama, where he studies with Ian Wilson and Robert Ehrlich, and works with the recorder quartet Aurai.
As well as recorder, Finn plays guitar, mandolin, bouzouki and whistle, and is an experienced folk music educator having previously been a tutor with the London Youth Folk Ensemble and taught at the London Folk Festival.
