Colin McAllister

Colin McAllister engages deeply with cross-disciplinary ideas in the humanities, particularly the intersection between music and history, classics and theology. His performances as a guitarist have been hailed as “sparkling….delivered superbly” (San Francisco Chronicle) and “ravishing” (San Diego Union Tribune), and he has recorded on the Innova, Centaur, Naxos, Albany, Old King Cole, Vienna Modern Masters, Carrier and Tzadik labels. Along with the Hennessy 6, Colin also performs regularly with the Trilix Jazz Trio. He is the editor of the Cambridge Companion to Apocalyptic Literature (forthcoming 2019) and has two publications with Productions d’OZ: The Vanguard Guitar and Fourteenth Century Counterpoint: Music of the Chantilly Codex. The Vanguard Guitar was praised by Soundboard magazine as “a great success…not only a primer of modern techniques, but also a library of current performance practices.” His guitar instructional course,Learning to Play Guitar: Chords, Scales and Solos was produced by The Great Courses and was released in April 2017. Colin is an Artist Partner with Taylor Guitars, and currently serves as Music Program Director at the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs.
