"Andrew has obviously done his homework on the music that he loves. Many of us in the modern string band field were beginning to wonder if our music was just a blip on the music map, but in the last couple of years, we have encountered a whole new generation of extremely talented young people who are getting ready to take this stuff to the next level. Andrew suddenly seems to be one of the major players in this field; both his concept and execution are original, while leaving no doubt as to his stylistic roots. He also seems to have a crucial something extra, the ability to lead and bring out a collective focus which will produce lasting inportant work that connects with the rest of the musical world." Darol Anger 
"Little Widgets" is the debut solo-release from Canadian mandolinist and newgrass proponent Andrew Collins of the Creaking Tree String Quartet and Foggy Hogtown Boys. This is a much anticipated follow up to his duo release, with Marc Roy, 'Likewise'. 
Little Widgets is a compilation of eleven instrumentals that feature Collins as composer, producer and multi-instrumentalist (mandolin, mandola, mandocello, guitar and fiddle), featuring nine originals, plus one Bach cello suite and a traditional tune. 
Andrew is joined on this recording by long-time musical associates John Showman (fiddle), Andrew Downing (bass), Brad Keller (guitar), Brian Kobayakawa (bass), Marc Roy (guitar), Chris Quinn (banjo) and Chris Coole (banjo).
