Described by fRoots magazine as “a genius” by Songlines as “a future classic” and by The Guardian as “an enchanting delight ★★★★” award-winning singer and composer brings his new show and Electrophon machine to beautifully crated songs and intriguing instrumental music. Luke performed at Celtic Connections and Cambridge Folk Festivals this year and played an official showcase at the US Folk Alliance Conference in Kansas City. His past work as a soloist with the London Philharmonic Orchsestra, member of the Riverdance band or with Cara Dillon sets his pedigree at the very highest level and promises a night of outstanding acoustic songs and instrumental music.
Luke has designed and built a brand new musical instrument for his latest show called the ‘Electrophon.’ It combines traditional source material new music technology, syncing step motion from the resonating steel comb of a c1880 polyphon machine with digital and midi time code to create new instrumental music and songs on 20” steel discs with which he plays guitar, melodeon and sings.
