Luka Bloom is regarded as one of Ireland’s best-respected contemporary folk artists, having produced 20 albums since the 1970s. Coming from a musical family, Luka has been gigging extensively since the age of 14, where he began as a support act to brother Christy Moore on the English folk club scene. Subsequent to touring with Planxty and The Pogues in the early 70's, he proceeded as a soloist and has become a household name in Europe, America and Australia; where he sang with the Dalai Lama in 2011. His hits include the cover of LL Cool J's 'I Need Love' which was mentioned by Rolling Stone magazine and 'You Couldn't Have Come At A Better Time'. In February 1993, Luka was requested by Lou Reed to sing with him and David Byrne for New York Club 'Bottom Line's' birthday bash. He is now embarking on an Irish tour in the autumn of 2016 where he will play songs from the new album Frugalisto.
