Lui radiates... an attitude of loving engagement.  Her music is an unqualified and unreserved affirmation of life...

Thanks for visiting my music pages.  You'll find everything having to do with my concerts and recordings here. You can sign up for my email list, order CDs, find song lyrics, or browse through archives of reviews, photos, and musings from over the years.

And check out my new band! 3 Ravens is composed of Donna Hébert on fiddle, Max Cohen on guitar, me on tenor ukulele, banjo and clarinet, and all three of us on vocals. You can read about the band and listen to samples of our music on our 3 Ravens website, and find concert listings both there and in my concert calendar.

My BIG NEWS right now is that our new Jane Yolen & 3 Ravens CD, The Infinite Dark has been released! I've never done anything quite like this before, and am honored to work with this gifted group of artists. I'll have the CD's listed soon in my online Catalogue, but for now you can order one by sending a check for $20 postpaid to Lui Collins, 137 Main Street Apt C, Shelburne Falls, MA 01370.

While you're here, I invite you to also check out my educational work on the Upside-Up Music pages. My Kids’ Jam Family Music Workshop recordings - duo arrangements of traditional and original songs with Anand Nayak (of Rani Arbo and daisy mayhem) - are getting rave reviews from grown-ups as well as kids. I've put together an 8-season (two year) curriculum, built around my Kids' Jam recordings.  While it was developed primarily for families, it's an excellent resource for teachers as well. And it's now available as an online homeschool curriculum as well, as Upside-Up's Music at Home!
