Self-taught, he earned 2nd place at the International Musical Saw Festival in California in 2019. He's practiced and performed all over the US over the last 11 years and has really enjoying playing with Jackson Creek Band (Joe & Katie Waller / Bill Dollahite) for almost 4 years.

He owned and operated Catania Folk Instruments in Pennsylvania from 1989 until 2018, manufacturing guitars, mandolins, dulcimers, kalimbas and various percussion instruments. After retiring, he and his wife, Tami, moved to Ormond Beach where he enjoys writing songs, playing tennis and painting seascapes.
"Most of our luck has snuck up on us, and some has been patient. Many years ago my wife bought me a ten dollar guitar. After half a lifetime I found it again." — Ron Collins
