Luke Bulla has been singing and playing music most of his life. Touring and singing with his family band from the tender age of four, Luke took up the fiddle at seven. Over the course of the next few years, he won the National Fiddle Contest six times in his respective age categories. His seventh win came in the Grand Champion division at age sixteen, making him the youngest to have earned the title at the time. Entering Nashville’s Grand Masters fiddle contest at age ten, Luke distinguished himself by being the youngest person to have made the Top Ten.
As a full-time Nashville resident since 1999, Luke has enjoyed playing fiddle with Ricky Skaggs and his band, Kentucky Thunder, as well as other wonderful musicians including Earl Scruggs, Lee Ann Womack, Brandi Carlile, Jim Lauderdale, Darrell Scott, Kevin Costner, Alison Krauss, Jerry Douglas, and Sam Bush. It was on a Cayamo Cruise that Luke and Lyle Lovett crossed paths leading to his invitation for Luke to join Lyle's touring band(s), including the world famous Large Band featuring many of America’s best-loved musicians. Luke’s feels very fortunate to have completed his seventh season with Lyle Lovett in 2016.
