Tour Dates 2008

Since 1978, Irish singer songwriter Luka Bloom has produced a canon of fifteen critically acclaimed albums with songs from his catalogue recorded by numerous artists. Two of his compositions ‘City of Chicago’ and ‘You Couldn’t Have Come at a Better Time’ have become standards performed by Irish, folk, roots and acoustic artists throughout the world.

After a ten year absence from touring the UK, Luka Bloom returns to perform a series of concerts starting with two shows at Celtic Connections in January 2008.
