Dellingr Duo

Anna Vala Ólafsdóttir, contralto

Luke Starkey, lute & theorbo

Anna Vala (contralto) and Luke Starkey (lute, theorbo & romantic guitar) together form Dellingr Duo. They perform music from the renaissance, baroque, romantic and contemporary music.


Luke plays early music on the theorbo and other instruments from the lute family. He graduated in 2010 from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama and since then he has worked as a freelance lutenist in the United Kingdom and the Netherlands. Luke performs in opera productions, chamber music concerts and baroque dance lessons. He also engages with the public through talks and lectures about lute instruments and early music.

Through the music they perform, Anna Vala and Luke take their audience on a journey back to the Venetian golden age, the Tudor dynasty of England and popular music from the 20th century.
