Ford Collier finds it easiest to describe himself as a multi-instrumentalist, although it would be tempting to just say he is indecisive.
Playing in The Drystones with Alex got him hooked on guitar and low whistle, and since their first gig together he has developed as both a subtle accompanist and an accomplished tune player. While studying music at the University of Sheffield, an interest in Indian music turned into an obsession and culminated in a final year recital on tabla, the north Indian drums. Recently, he has given up on deciding which instrument he should practise the most.
Ford also plays with innovative singer and banjo player Kate Griffin and Sheffield indie-funk group the Life Aquatic Band.
