Collins Family

Vince Collins stems from St. Anne's, Placentia Bay, and has an extensive repertoire of singles, doubles, step tunes and waltzes as well as some of his own compositions.

His parents were accordion players, and the love of music was nurtured in all their children.

His son, Glen, is one of the most sought after guitarists in Newfoundland.

He has performed, recorded and toured with many of Newfoundland's finest musical artists and has recently released an album entitled Superpickers! - Blues on the Ceiling, with two other well-known Newfoundland guitarists (Sandy Morris and Peter Narváez).

As a young boy, he learned many traditional tunes from his father.

Glen's daughter, Maeve, is now the next generation and is quite busy learning the repertoire that her father and grandfather know so well.
