Chris Luquette is one of the hardest working musicians from the Seattle music scene. You’d be hard pressed to find another 28 year old seamlessly switching from International music to jazz; from rock and roll to bluegrass so comfortably. He has studied Brazilian Jazz with Seattle based Brazil music legend, Jovino Santos Neto. Chris’ musicianship reflects the multitude of musical influences he turns to for inspiration. His acoustic guitar playing stands out, but this virtuosic, multi-instrumentalist is equally at home playing mandolin, drums, bass, electric guitar, banjo, and Greek bouzouki. In February of 2017, Chris along with Dirty Kitchen played on the world famous Grand Ole Opry. In addition, Chris was a founding member of Seattle-based group, Northern Departure. He has performed on stage with notable acts such as Jerry Douglas, Emmylou Harris, Bryan Sutton, Rob Ickes and Trey Hensley, The Steep Canyon Rangers, Kenny and Amanda Smith, The Boxcars and Yogi and The Yogini’s.
