Bernd Lüdtke

Fiddle, Bouzouki, Bodhrán, Vocals.

Born and grew up in West Berlin, he took already classical guitar lessons at the early age of nine. The influence of the english speaking radio stations AFN and BFBS with their folk and country music programs led to it that already with 16 years he played folk guitar and 5 string banjo. Soon he was active in several groups in Berlin, as well as in Bluegrass also in the Irish Folk branch.

At 17 he achieved a “ young talent guitarist “ award. His fast musical aptitude and skill led to it that he soon played tenor banjo, mandolin, bodhran and irish bouzouki and was a very sought after group and studio musician. After his studies, he moved into the professional camp and played in many groups. His wish was always to play a lead melody instrument, so he began to learn the irish fiddle through teachers and workshops in Ireland and germany. Today when time permits, Bernd is active as a fiddle teacher and gives instruction in fiddle workshops.

With Midnight Court he brings interesting ideas into the arrangements of the songs and tunes and brings colour into the sound picture of Midnight Court with his clear harmony singing and excellent fiddle playing.
