FRIDAY 4TH OCTOBER 2013
7.00 p.m. - 10.00 p.m.
With a poets heart and a rockster’s soul, Luka Bloom is regarded as one of Ireland's best-respected contemporary folk artists, having produced 20 albums since the 1970s, Bloom continues to push the boundaries of what his music can do, and the 2012/13 Heartman Tour proves he is still making provocative, poetic music that delves deep into the intricacies of the human soul and pulls out the nuggets and puts them in a song.
Luka Bloom writes and performs songs and has done for 4 decades now. For a man of limitless passion for music, change, tradition and its lessons, he says of it all that “It’s all about the Song”. That summer of love in 1969 was the first time Luka Bloom (known then by the birth name Barry Moore) set to the stage to support his older brother and renowned Irish singer Christy Moore and since then he has been bringing his unique, passionate sound to indigenous and international audiences on stages from the United States to Australia, and through every venue imaginable in his native Ireland (in turf bogs, record stores, upon a bike and on protest sites) Belgium, Germany, Switzerland and Holland (to name a few of the countries with avid fans) playing atop mountains, cycling onto stage and even supporting His Holiness The Dalai Lama in 2011 in Australia.
