Luke works as a lute maker based in Colchester, Essex, where he makes, repairs and refurbishes lutes and related early plucked instruments. As an active player as well as maker, he has a passion for making the best-sounding Renaissance lutes, and first and foremost focuses on sound quality and playability.

Luke comments that ‘The lute has such a wonderful sound and repertoire, its music continues to inspire me. Being able to build these beautiful tools for musicians is a key driver behind my work.’
