Hello! I’m Luke Abbott.

I’m a musician, focusing on bluegrass and old-time styles—singing, banjo, fiddle, guitar, mandolin, and a few other instruments. See my music page for videos and more.

In mid-2016 I released an online practice tool called Strum Machine, which has been very exciting and has become my main work focus.

I was born and raised in Santa Cruz, CA. I used to teach a lot of private music lessons there, but in 2019 I moved to San Luis Obispo, CA and decided to take a break from teaching (for the most part). I still teach at music camps.

Past claims to fame include my “cult hit” 2010 solo album, 10+ years with my family’s ToneWay Project, and two episodes of Trading Spouses (from 2004) that some people don’t seem to forget… 😉

Want to drop me a line? Feel free to contact me!

Thanks for stopping by,
Luke
