Mike Collins Jr.

Mike Collins Jr. was born in South Carolina lives in New Orleans, but his home is the road. He travels with everything he owns, his banjo on his back and his clothes in his suitcase-cum-bass drum. He sets up anywhere in the world he wants, busking everywhere from major American cities to tiny French hamlets, on street corners and in metro stations, in parks and in the French Quarter of his adopted home, He gets from place to place however he can, hitchhiking trough Europe and hopping freight trains in French Canada. He sleeps where he can, on a stranger’s couch or under the starts. It is, for Collins, a relentless pursuit of living freely and cheaply, and at full speed.
