Meet Merv Collins, a Fingerstyle Guitarist who has been playing music for over 4 decades. Merv’s instrumental music is influenced by celtic, classical, new age, country, folk, medieval and even some good old rock and roll music, and is reminiscent of the styles played by Tommy Emanuel, Stephen Bennett, Michael Hedges, Al Petteway, Michael Gulezian, and many other fingerstyle masters. Merv’s current instrument line up includes his prized Taylor 714ce acoustic guitar, a Taylor NS54CE classical guitar, a Composite Acoustic 5IM CE carbon fiber guitar, a Weissenborn lap steel guitar, a Wechter Scheerhorn dobro, and a newly acquired Holloway Model 5 Harp Guitar. Merv has released 3 CDs of original instrumental music, the 1st titled “Bits & Pieces” and 2nd titled “True to the Music” and the most recent release titled “Fingers & Strings”, which are all available for purchase at Merv’s shows or directly from Merv upon request.

Merv’s music and style has been described as:
“Merv is a master of expressing the subtle sounds that give meaning to music”
“His music takes you through a variety of different emotions from the quiet, tranquil, and contemplative to the happy, outgoing, life is wonderful, emotions”
“Merv has extraordinary fingerstyle picking style that translates into soothing sounds”
“Merv Collins creates both a warm and invigorating mood with his music”
“His love of music comes through in an overall upbeat rhythm that also leads the listener through comforting moments of resolution and peace”
