Branching away from his classical piano and violin training in 1997, Luke Plumb began teaching himself the mandolin and swiftly became one of Australia’s most sought after session musicians. He was recruited by Edinburgh based acid croft pioneers Shooglenifty in 2002, and for eleven years Luke’s compositions drove the band’s music into new territory which can be heard across three studio albums where his music dominates the repertoire. 

 

Since returning to Australia he has become a highly acclaimed record producer while still pursuing his solo career. Regarded as one of the world’s leading exponents of traditional music on the mandolin, he still composes, tours, teaches and records with the vitality of someone still excited by the possibilities that music holds.
