Kate Luxmoore

Kate Luxmoore is a West Country girl – but her travels and musical exploration have taken her far and wide – through classical, jazz, and world music before bringing her back to her roots. The Somerset Songbook Revisited gives voice to her unique take on English folk tunes. Music with a sense of Englishness at its heart – but with a shared world vision. She has performed at Festivals and venues worldwide such as Glastonbury and Womad, with artists such as Pianist Ian Buckle, Song writers Anna Ryder, Julie Ann Reagan and Jackie McShee, Fairport Convention, Storytellers Vayu Naidu and Pyn Stockman, The Shysters, Open Theatre Company, Talking Birds Theatre, Salamander Tandem Dance Company, Tangle Theatre, as well as and appearing on BBC TV and recording for BBC Radio 3 and 4 with composer John Nicholls. She has a long-standing collaboration with Percussionist Lekan Babalola producing their first album as the KLLB Band in 2005, Tales of Diaspora.
