Charlie Collins | Back
Percussion

Charlie Collins is one of the leading figures on the long established Sheffield free music scene. He began playing drums at the age of 11, but later took up the flute, and for a while became best known as a woodwind and reeds player. But he then started on vibraphone, which led him back to his first love of percussion, and these days he plays just about anything that can be hit, shaken or stroked! His musical associations are as diverse as his instrumental accomplishments, and he may be the only musician to have appeared both at Derek Bailey's Company Week and on 'Top of the Pops'.
