Biography of Kate Luxmoore

Kate studied at The Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester and then The Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London. Studying under Peter Weigold and Peter Renshaw Kate embarked on a course in Performance and Communication Skills which lead to her involvement in many cross arts collaborations and educational projects.

Kate’s skill is undoubtably her ability to embrace any genre from classical to folk, jazz and world music. Her talent is in demand with projects for BBC Radio and Television plus internationally renowned organisations such as The Halle Orchestra, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, Britten Sinfonia, Birmingham Royal Ballet and The Royal Festival Hall. And she has worked with award winning musicians including Omar Puente, Lekan Babalola, Lucky Ranku, Pritam Singh, Karen Street and Fairport Convention.

But she has never forgotten her roots and regularly organises workshops encouraging and empowering the next generation of musicians to create, compose and perform. She is currently a mentor for students at The Royal College of Music on their outreach programme.

What audiences have said about Kate's live shows:


'I came to the gig as a result of an invite from a friend and had no idea what I was to expect. And Wow. Just wow. Not only was the music totally, totally original, like nothing I have heard before, but it was also compelling and utterly infectious. The crazy blend of genres that on paper just shouldn't work went right through me, I went from initial surprise to hairs standing up on my arm to smiling to jiggling in my seat to finally up and dancing with the other members of the audience. It was joyously compelling with Kate Luxmoore leading on the clarinet like a snake charmer for humans!'

"I found the music really inspiring and uplifting. Really beautiful"

"The Kate Luxmore Group are one of the most inspirational and original groups I have heard play live in a long time.

The music is impressive. It is all original compositon by Kate Luxmore. Who has an inate mastery over any genre of music she hears. African weaves seamlessly with West Country. Latin into Classical. Dance into Spiritual. The composition and music are compelling and moving.

As musicans, they are even more impressive. Present in their live performance. They have virtuoso command over their instruments. They can play everything and anything, beautifully.

It was a wonderful intimate evening at the purcell room. I couldn't take my eyes and ears off what was happening on stage. Each track was a delightful present. And by the end of the evening I could stand it no longer and got up and danced to the last few tracks.

Do yourself, your ears and your soul a favour and go and go and see them live."
