Philip Collins is a Winnipeg based trumpet player who has been playing for a number of years. A versatile musician, Philip has covered a vast range of styles from Jazz to Rock, and Reggae to Country. A former member of the Dirty Catfish Brass Band, Moses Mayes, and the Solutions, Philip now leads his own projects around the city. Tonight Philip will be joined by Keith Price (guitar) to entertain you with a combination of original tunes and standards.
Beginning on his grandfather’s old guitar, Keith Price was first influenced by pop music, punk-rock, and heavy metal before discovering jazz at age fifteen. Price began his formal studies at The Conservatory of Amsterdam and upon returning to Winnipeg, turned down a scholarship from The New School in New York City and instead, opted to study with local jazz guitar guru Larry Roy as part of Steve Kirby’s newly established jazz program at The University of Manitoba. Price is now enjoying an inspiring period of musical growth while studying with internationally recognized pianist and composer Michael Cain.
