Lee Collinson at Bromsgrove Folk Club

Catshill Social Club, Meadow Road, Catshill, Bromsgrove, B61 0JJ

From the earliest age Lee has been blessed with fingers capable of guitar-playing beyond mere mortals! His solo career began in 1987 after experiencing life as a lead guitarist in a number of rock bands. His impact was immediate, captivating audiences at folk clubs and festivals, reaching the BBC ‘Young Folk’ finals – twice, touring in a trio with Keith Hancock and Clive Gregson, and forging a successful solo career with his eclectic repertoire comprising folk and blues in all of its forms. His albums, co-produced by Dave Swan, feature guest appearances from the likes of Christine Collister, Barb Jungr and Tom McConville and his career has taken him all over the world.

Lee can switch from contemporary and traditional folk, to 50s style, blues and jazz. He started out by playing in rock band Cloud Nine, the duo, Richard III and then another rock band, Typically Max. In 1987, Collinson embarked upon a solo career, and was twice a finalist in BBC Radio’s Young Tradition Award. The subsequent broadcast, and a chance meeting with Spiv Records at a folk festival, resulted in his debut release, Limbo, followed by the much lauded Slip the Driver a Fiver.
