Luka Bloom will bring his show to the Courthouse Arts Centre, Tinahely, on Friday, March 16, at 8.30 p.m.

Having produced more than 20 albums since the 1970s, Luka Bloom continues to push the boundaries of what his music can do. Born into a very musical family, Luka (62) is the youngest of six and grew up in Newbridge, County Kildare. He was christened Barry Moore, but changed his name for professional reasons.

A master interpreter, he has continued to balance original songs with reinventions of tunes by a diverse range of songwriters.

Like many who write songs, Luka's orchestra of choice is the guitar. What makes his career a little different is his constant search for a new voice within the guitar. The guitar is the landscape on which the song is created, and he is forever probing that landscape for new inspiration. No effects, no gadgets, just searing voice and mastery of his instrument. His most recent album 'Refuge' was released in October 2017.

Tickets are €16 or €14 concession and available at or 0402 38529.
