A native Tennessean, Shelby Lewis now finds his home in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, where he pursues a career on modern and historic trumpets. Along with national and international engagements in early music, Shelby continues to follow his passions for design, woodworking, and photography alongside his career as a trumpeter... while also performing/teaching actively “on the bayou” (in Baton Rouge and New Orleans) as a classical, jazz, and commercial trumpeter. Possessing a master’s degree in architecture, he’s at the front end of a long-term study of historic performing conditions for trumpet and pipe organ; a study that aims to fully utilize his musical and architectural training. His latest personal project involves creating reproductions of trumpet mutes from the 17th and 18th centuries.
