GRAMMY Award winner Luke Bulla has been singing and playing music most of his life. Touring with and singing in his family band from the age of four, he took up fiddle at seven. Over the course of the next few years, he won the National Fiddle Contest in Weiser, Idaho, six times in his respective age categories. His seventh win came in the Grand Champion division at age 16, making him the youngest to have earned the title at the time. Entering Nashville’s Grand Master Fiddle Championship at age 10, Bulla distinguished himself by being the youngest person to have made the top 10. He’s a longtime member of Lyle Lovett’s Large Band. In addition to violin, he plays guitar and mandolin, performing his own original folk-country-American-tinged songs. More recently, Bulla has performed and/or recorded with many well-known artists including Brandi Carlile, Chris Thile, Alison Krauss, Bela Fleck, Shawn Colvin, Tony Rice, Patty Griffin, Rodney Crowell and Earl Scruggs. Luke plays ‘progressive bluegrass’ and he has been evolving into more as a singer-songwriter. After settling down in Texas in 2019, Luke is currently touring the country playing solo and occasionally alongside fellow players up to a trio. Photo by Nicola Gell.
