The Collectors

Collectors and purveyors of fine music...

We are The Collectors

The Collectors are an acoustic/electric duo formed by Jason McDonald and Bret Scott. We came together after discovering shared tastes in music and realizing that our natural inclinations to lead and rhythm guitar made a perfect fit.  

Jason McDonald

Jason has been playing guitar for more than twenty years, and his main focus is in improvisational and lead guitar. He's sat in with several local bands, including the Juice Junkies and Jericho Joe.
Jason's influences include: Led Zeppelin, the Grateful Dead, Jimi Hendrix, and Trey Anastasio.
Jason currently resides in Cohoes, NY.  

Bret Scott

Bret has been playing acoustic six and twelve string guitar for ten years, predominately twelve string. He has performed with local singer-songwriter Dan Sherwin, and has attended several workshops on flamenco guitar.  
Bret's influences include: Led Zeppelin, Neil Young, Santana, Jimi Hendrix, and Stevie Ray Vaughan.
Bret currently resides in Waterford, NY, with his lovely wife Karen, and their two Siamese cats Stevie and Carlos.
