Lydia Luce at The Music Hall

The Music Hall
28 Chestnut St
Portsmouth, NH 03801

Luce grew up in a strict musical household where her mother was a professional conductor for the Ars Flores Symphony Orchestra and learning the violin was not presented as a choice. A virtuoso from six years old, she excelled in numerous philharmonics. She obtained her master’s at UCLA in the viola, but knew her path was not that of a professional classical musician. She studied ethnomusicology, performance and songwriting at Berklee, traveled and studied Ghanian music, then worked at world music label Smithsonian Folkways Records. She has performed viola and violin with artists like Eminem, Rob Stewart, Dolly Parton, and Willie Nelson.
