Luke Daniels, Brings beautifully crafted Acoustic Music to The Atkinson

THE Polyphon is a disc playing music box, a mechanical device manufactured in Leipzig, Germany in 1880. Disc projections, called plectra, engage with a series of ratchet like star wheels, that, when moved through 40 degrees on their axis, pluck 120 teeth on the instruments bed plate and comb, these teeth then resonate, sounding predetermined notes. Upon the musical comb, the fast treble notes are sounded furthest from the arts centre and the slower base notes nearest the centre. Newly manufactured 19 and 5/8 inch diameter steel discs rotate at 1.4 rpm and perform the 1st new music written for Polyphon in over a century.

A BBC award winning folk musician and former Riverdance band member who has performed with Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull, Cara Dillon and De Dannan. He was also Folk Musician in Residence of the Scottish National Museum of Rural Life and tutor on the traditional music course at Royal Conservatoire Scotland in Glasgow.

His 2015 album of melodeon music transcribed from early wax cylinders and 78's was described in the Scotsman as "outstanding." A soloist on the Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit soundtracks he performed at the Royal Festival Hall with the London Philharmonic Orchestra. His commissioned work for the PRS for Music New Music Biennial in 2014 was broadcast live on BBC Radio 3 from London's Barbican Centre and Glasgow Royal Concert Hall. He has performed at the Edinburgh Festival's Assembly Rooms and on Broadway with Riverdance.

His musical partnership with the School of Philosophy at Edinburgh University culminated in sell out shows at Celtic Connections Festival on 2 consecutive years with Songs of the Scottish Enlightenment. He recently sang and played live for Mark Radcliffe on his BBC Radion 2 folk programme and was described by Mark as a "master melodeon player."

Luke is a musician and songwriter of true pedigree and the evening promises to be a night of outstanding acoustic songs and music, at The Atkinson, on Thursday, 28 September 2017.  You can book your tickets now online or call the Box Office on:- 01704 533 333.
