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.’ The Irish Times
A singer and songwriter whose music is defined by passion, lyricism, and
a respect of tradition coupled with a willingness to defy expectations, Luka Bloom is one of Ireland’s best-respected
contemporary folk artists. He has been writing and recording now for almost 40
years and always returns to the words and to the song. His latest album, Refuge,creates a home within music and in 2013 he published a book of
photos, essays and verse, aptly called Homeplace.
We are delighted to welcome Luka back to our HomePlace in The Helicon
following his sell-out visit in 2019.
