LUKA BLOOM -BITTERSWEET CRIMSON

CD Cover Bittersweet Crimson

Luka Bloom’s latest album ‘Bittersweet Crimson’ is actually his 22nd- that’s a lot of song writing, a lot of stories, and a lot of touring.

But as he tells Arts Canvass’s Karena Wynn-Moylan in this revealing interview, he now writes different material to the those first albums, more outward looking, and ironically, he has produced this latest CD knowing he couldn’t tour with it due to the current world situation. Despite this, he has had enormous success in Ireland with  single form the Cd ‘The Beauty of Everyday Things’. We ponder why this particular track struck a chord with listeners and just what  the role of being a songwriter means in today's  world.

Luka was supported on this album by the musicians – Jon O’Connell, Steve Cooney and Robbie Harris with extra vocals by Niamh Farrell and fiddle by Adam Shapiro.

The album is available only  from  his website on www.lukabloom.com.

This interview was first aired on Arts Canvass Bay FM 99.9 on September 3, 2020.
