Collister & Fix 2018 Tour

She draws her inspiration from the Celtic mysteries of the Isle of Man, in the middle of the Irish Sea. He has both the dry deserts of Australia and a German heritage in his blood. Between them, Christine Collister and Michael Fix create a rare musical synergy, that transcends cultures and musical traditions to enrapture audiences wherever they perform. Riding high on being the hit of the Port Fairy Folk Festival in 2017, where they sold out their entire CD inventory, Collister & Fix are returning with a new album and are on the trail to grace Australian stages in 2018.

Christine Collister paid her dues on the British folk circuit before becoming part of the Richard Thompson band, with which she toured for three years. She has since graced numerous Thompson recordings and is still his “go to” vocalist for select engagements. Over the years, she has shared the stage with Martin Simpson, Bonnie Raitt, The Bangles, Richard Thompson and Loudon Wainwright III. She then performed as part of the Gregson and Collister duo, with five critically acclaimed albums, and currently has a thriving solo career, releasing 12 of her own albums, Christine now divides her time between the Isle of Man, Los Angeles and Australia. You can hear the intricate map of her life in every note she sings.

Michael Fix is widely acclaimed as one of the world’s finest acoustic guitarists. Born in Wollongong, he was mentored during his early career by the legendary Tommy Emmanuel. He has won three Golden Guitars and numerous other awards in Australia, and tours widely throughout the world, particularly in Europe, but also in China, Japan, Thailand, South Africa and New Zealand. Michael is also an internationally recognised composer, whose music is widely heard in TV shows and documentaries all over the world. He was named as one of top 20 ‘Best Australian Guitarists of all time’ by readers of Australian Guitar Magazine.
