David Lyttle

David Lyttle began performing professionally at the age of four in his family folk group, playing bongos, bodhrán and mini lambeg drum. A few years later he added uilleann and lowland pipes, cello and, at eight years old, drum kit. He began focusing his efforts on the drum kit at the age of eighteen after hearing jazz and at nineteen received a scholarship to study at Skidmore Jazz Institute (New York). The following year he attended the Banff Centre's International Workshop in Jazz (Canada), also on scholarship. After completing his classical cello studies at the University of Ulster, David began a PhD in Musicology and graduated as a Doctor of Philosophy in 2009.
