Colin McKay’s style of music is a mix of fun-time Folk and mystical Blues. The free spiritedness of Willie Nelson, the adventurism of Ry Cooder, and the minstrel-esque qualities of Ronnie Lane all come together on Colin’s latest recording, A Romp Down The Avenue. 

Colin has been putting his musical talents and passion to use in performing groups throughout the years, most notably as the leader of The Wandering Bards.

Colin is also a beloved music teacher whose purpose is keeping the roots and joy of music alive within the next generation.

In live performances, Colin sings and plays the acoustic guitar, mandolin and ukulele. His wife, Jessica plays electric bass guitar and supplies harmony vocals. Based in New Jersey, they have performed at The Dragonfly Cafe, Crossroads, Roxy and Dukes Roadhouse, and for many private engagements.
