With a poet's heart and a rockster's soul, Luka Bloom is regarded as one of Ireland's most respected contemporary folk artists, having produced over 20 albums since the 1970s, Bloom continues to push the boundaries of what his music can do. A master interpreter, he has continued to balance original songs with reinventions of tunes by a diverse range of songwriters. Like many who write songs, Luka's orchestra of choice is the guitar. What makes his career a little different is his constant search for a new voice within the guitar. The guitar is the landscape on which the song is created, and he is forever probing that landscape for new inspiration. No effects, no gadgets, just searing voice and mastery of his instrument. His most recent album 'Refuge' was released 2017 and he will have a new release later this year.

"With each successive album, Luka Bloom digs deeper and gazes wider… he is on top form".

– The Irish Times **** 2016 Review of 'Frugalisto'
