Born in Northern Ireland, but living in various locations including Germany and the Falkland Islands, Colin Burns’music reflects his varied upbringing. He began writing songs in his teens, taking classical guitar lessons that strongly shaped his musical style. Listening to rock and pop but studying classical guitar, he began to develop the rich blend of techniques that marks his playing out today.
At our Easter Festival Colin Burns will be playing songs from his new debut album "Emerald and Gold":
Combining classical and popular influence, guitarist Colin Burns introduces his debut album Emerald & Gold. The project brings together compositions from many years with the painter-turned-performer fusing instrumental dexterity and melodic poetry.
The record is a mix of instrumental compositions and songs, with strong spiritual themes running throughout. Awake the Dawn draws on Psalm 57, and the Sweet Lightning talks about the Holy Spirit though the imagery of a storm. The album also includes two collaborations with Texan wordsmith Peter
Nevland. The tracks resulted from a suggestion by acclaimed producer Andy Baker, who recommended the use of spoken word poetry to compliment Burns’ guitar instrumentation.
An eclectic and impressive debut, Emerald & Gold offers listeners a fresh perspective on folk, faith and fingerpicking.
