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 will welcome Luka to our HomePlace in The Helicon as
he performs his best-loved songs in this intimate solo gig.

‘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.’
