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 latest album, Refuge, put a finger on the fractured nature of so much of what’s happening in our world today, from homelessness to war to climate change. 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.

For 40 years, Luka Bloom has been making records and travelling the world singing his songs. Since 1992, Luka has toured Australia 12 times. In February/March 2019 Luka will bring his 13th tour to the land he loves.

Along with all the favourites, Luka will perform songs from his 23rd album REFUGE for which the tour has been named. There is also a live CD coming on-stream. MIG in Germany are releasing a live Luka concert from Radio Bremen in 2001.

“What a hard working national treasure this artist is, equipped as he is with the wit, storytelling, musicianship, singing and songwriting genes this magical country of ours seems to have by the boatload.” – THE IRISH EXAMINER

“I did my first Australian show at a packed Enmore Theatre in 1992. Although this was my first ever concert in Australia, already it felt like a homecoming. I knew I instantly loved this country and hoped I would return many times. Apart from Ireland, Australia is a country I actually miss when I am away too long. Like Ireland, Australia is clearly not a perfect place, nowhere is. But it is a home away from home for me. I miss my friends there, I love the shows and the festivals. But that is a given. I love my job and I am utterly blessed that my songs bring me back to Australia again and again to sing with people I love to see.”

As Luka says himself ‘It’s all about the song’.

And no better place to sing your song than in Australia.’

Yes this already feels like a homecoming….I can’t wait.
