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.
With Christine’s sultry, sensuous voice and unsurpassed brilliance in range, combined with Michael’s exquisite guitar playing, the listener is forever transported to places in the soul where only music can take you.
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.

Christine Collister & Michael Fix
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.

Christine and Michael’s paths first crossed in 2014, when they tutored at the Winterbreak Music Retreat on Queensland’s Tamborine Mountain. Combining her voice with his guitar playing was a no brainer in terms of talent and temperament, and the Collister & Fix duo was born.

Collister & Fix’s combined talents, passion for music and overall love of life are a delight for any audience to witness. Their performances strike a wonderful balance between their unique arrangements of timeless melodies of popular tunes and their own unforgettable compositions. Well-loved repertoire from contemporaries such as Bruce Springsteen, Paul Simon, the Beatles and Bonny Raitt are represented alongside classic ballads of Ewan MacColl and Declan O’Rourke.

In early 2017, Collister & Fix toured Australia, performing at festivals and concert venues, receiving a rapturous reception wherever they appeared. The duo will make its UK debut with a series of performances in October.

The Australian tour was such a powerful experience for both artists and audiences that Collister & Fix will return with a new album and another tour of Australia in 2018.

A500 Music aim to present some of the finest acoustic style music in a friendly and intimate environment.

We seat our audience at tables in a cabaret style and because we always hope to be near capacity, we allocate seating to our guests according to when they purchased their tickets.

By inviting you to bring your own drink, we are making the evening an inexpensive as well as enjoyable experience.

Drinking glasses will be available on the night and we also provide free hot drinks.
