Colin M. Walsh began his pipe organ building career in 1977, at age 14, by serving a full, formal apprenticeship in Dublin, Ireland. He then immigrated to Nova Scotia in 1981 as a journeyman organ-builder. There he continued in his craft, building and restoring pipe organs throughout Atlantic Canada.
In 1985, Colin moved to Pennsylvania where he continued his work in organ-building. In 1995, he founded his own business to continue and further the high standards of craftsmanship and artisan work in building and restoring fine musical instruments.
In 2016, Colin returned to Halifax, to establish Acadia Pipe Organs Ltd., dedicated to the preservation of pipe organs in Atlantic Canada.
Andrew is a native Nova Scotion from Halifax. He began his work on pipe organs in 1999 with the Organ Rescue Project, and began working for Acadia Pipe Organs in 2018. Andrew is an accomplished musician and is a well known Cape Breton fiddle player.
