Described by Songlines as “a future classic” and by Acoustic Magazine as “an enchanting delight” ★★★★ award-winning singer and composer Luke Daniels brings his solo show which uses an original 19th century Polyphon machine as part of the performance. Live, clockwork and sampled sound beautifully crafted into modern morality tales and intriguing instrumental music.

Luke’s work as a member of the Cara Dillon Band and Riverdance Orchestra sets his pedigree at the very highest level and promises a night of outstanding acoustic songs and music.

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 centre and the slower base notes nearest the centre. Newly manufactured 19 and 5/8th inch diameter steel discs rotate at 1.4 rpm and perform the first new music written for Polyphon in over a century.
