Jim Dowling Uilleann Pipe and Trad Festival
June 15th-18th 2023

There’s a chance to see a true craftsman in action on Saturday 17th June in Glengarriff as part of the Jim Dowling Festival 2023, when Luka Bloom comes to the Eccles Hotel.

Showcasing his vast collection of songs from a 51 year career, Bloom will bring his distinctive guitar tone and impassioned voice to this beautiful West Cork venue. Luka Bloom is regarded as one of Ireland’s most respected contemporary folk artists, having produced over 20 albums since the 1970s, he continues to push the boundaries of what his music can do. 

Born into a very musical family, Luka is the youngest of six and grew up in Newbridge, Co Kildare. He was christened Barry Moore, but changed his name for professional reasons and is now based in Co Clare.

Luka Bloom really puts on a great live show, offering something that manages to be gentle and intriguing. Well worth checking out!
