Luka Bloom plays at the Centre on Friday Nov. 29th @ 8pm. Tickets €20
Luka Bloom is one of Ireland’s most respected contemporary folk artists. Having produced over 20 albums since the 1970s, he continues to push the boundaries of what his music can do. In the build up to the 30th anniversary since the release of ‘Riverside’, Luka looks forward to revisiting his seminal album along with many other favourites from his vast catalogue.
“The very embodiment of the folk singer, Luka Bloom has that deep sense of social justice with an uncanny ability to distil contemporary life into the pithiest and most alluring combinations of lyrics and melody lines. His voice is still as open and honest as it was over 30 years ago, and his guitar finds chord combinations that are all his own. Passion, playfulness and pause for thought: a hearty combination in any gig.” Siobhan Long, Irish Times.
