Mojo Collins, a fourth generation North Carolinian singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, has been performing for 6 decades and has become a North Carolina Blues and Folk legend. Born in 1944 in Raleigh, North Carolina, Mojo was the son of Edna and Bill Collins, both musicians. Taught guitar mostly by his paternal grandmother Lorraine, Collins quickly learned the basic Piedmont blues and folk structures, and later took lessons from his father “Wild Bill”. Back porch jams, on Sundays with family and friends gave him the opportunity to develop and polish the “Piedmont style” of finger picking at an early age.
He has a quiet charm and talent that is impressive. His songs are original and wide in their scope.
