As Bill Collings will tell you, "it's not about the tools, it's the mentality of the people building the guitars that matters." After 40 years spent creating a quality-driven culture around a team of highly skilled craftsmen in Austin, Texas, building the best is more a state of mind than a series of repeatable steps. Collings understands the drive, passion, and individual attention that goes into crafting a truly great electric guitar.
We are happy to feature the Grammy winning singer songwriter and multi instrumentalist Tim O’Brien on the Banjo Studio podcast. Tim grew up singing in church and in school, and after seeing Doc Watson on TV, became a lifelong devotee of old time and bluegrass music.
We recently sat down to talk with 5-string banjo legend Tony Trischka. Tony has been a pioneer in progressive bluegrass and 5-string banjo for decades. He has won numerous awards and has pushed the banjo into new territories.
