Keith Collins

Bassoon, Contrabassoon

C. Keith Collins is a multi-instrumentalist whose musical tastes range from medieval and baroque to the traditional music of his ancestral Appalachian homeland. Praised for his “mastery...and most perfect intonation possibly imaginable”, Keith has performed or recorded with Tafelmusik, Apollo’s Fire, Washington Bach Consort, and the National Cathedral Baroque Orchestra among others. He is a founding member of Heartland Baroque, plays recorder, curtal, bray harp, and shawm with the Forgotten Clefs, and directs “Isshallyn,” an ensemble specializing in early music of Scotland, Ireland, and Wales. The music of his native southern Appalachians holds a special place in his heart, and he enjoys exploring that music with fretless banjo, Appalachian dulcimer, and shape-note and ballad traditions. Keith is adjunct instructor at the Historical Performance Institute of Indiana University’s Jacobs School of Music in Bloomington.
