Description

Luke Plumb & the Circuit
Turn & ReTurn is the first new body of work released by mandolinist Luke Plumb after 12 years touring with cult acid- croft hypno-folkadelic band, Shooglenifty. Conceptualised while walking home from a session in Edinburgh, Scotland, Turn & ReTurn is a bold release defying boundaries of genre. Drawing on 15 years of musical interactions from around the world, Plumb’s compositions are grounded in traditional musics and driven by dance rhythms.

In his own words, “…I envisaged a gig fronted by duelling melodic lines on trumpet and mandolin, backed by a rhythm section drawing on the pulsating sound of cretan lutes, the rebellious acoustic guitar style of Keith Richards and the Velvet Underground’s throbbing Moe Tucker drum sound”.

Turn and ReTurn is the 5th album Plumb has worked on with revered Scottish folk industry icon Calum Malcolm (The Go-Betweens, Mark Knopfler, Stephane Grapelli, Capercaillie) as a producer/co-producer, and the 9th as a mixing/mastering engineer.

Now living in Tasmania, Luke also works as an engineer, teacher, and acclaimed producer; working most recently with iconic Irish musician, Andy Irvine.

“Through his ground-breaking work with folk minimalist group 'Senan's Haggart', his playing and composition that helped give 'Shooglenifty' new life, his duo with James MacKintosh and his solo work, runs a thread of sunny, assured, innovative and distinctly Australian music making.'

Kate Burke & Luke Plumb duo
Kate and Luke share a love for 1970s Irish folk revival music, having obsessively absorbed the music of the era - in particular Planxty’s revolutionary treatments of traditional songs. Since then they have each toured with Andy Irvine, with both being featured on Andy’s most recent album Precious Heroes, which Luke produced.
Kate & Luke now bring their formidable instrumental skills, strong vocals and creative minds to making groove-based, complex interpretations of traditional song.
