About Luke

Luke Daniels presents a truly fascinating show featuring a new instrument he has created from an 19th Century mechanical music machine called a polyphon.

Luke has designed and built his brand new musical instrument - the 'Electrophon'. It uses original 20 steel discs from a polyphon plus new technical wizardry and Luke combines this with traditional source material to create new instrumental music and songs. Luke plays guitar and melodeon alongside the Electrophon, augmenting the simple tunes from the steel discs with vibrant arrangements.

Luke is a folk musician and singer who has performed at Celtic Connections and Cambridge Folk Festival among many others. His past work as a soloist with the London Philharmonic Orchestra, member of the Riverdance band and with singer Cara Dillon sets his pedigree at the very highest level and promises a night of outstanding acoustic songs and instrumental music.

In addition to music performed with the Electrophon, Luke will be playing songs from his latest album, Singing Ways to feel more Junior, a wonderful exploration of contemporary issues which is a reminder that folk songs can be inspirational, comforting even, and needn't be fixed in the past.

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 Luke Daniels, with his Electrophon machine, beautifully crafted songs and intriguing instrumental music, should not be misse
