30 years of Riverside

Luka Bloom

Irish musician Luka Bloom will perform in the Stevenskerk on Friday 17 April 2020.

Luka Bloom has a special connection with the Netherlands. He has been performing here on a regular basis for more than 25 years. The combination of an intriguing guitar sound, an impressive body of work and Bloom’s stage skills have all added up to a loyal fan base over the years. The 64 year old Barry Moore, better known as Luka Bloom, scored a big hit almost by accident in the early nineties with a cover of LL Cool J’s ‘I Need Love’. Armed with an acoustic guitar and his unique, fragile voice he is able to win over any audience.

Tonight he is going to celebrate the 30 year anniversary of his album “Riverside”, an album filled with poetic lyrics and diverse and original compositions. “Riverside” is one of the most pronounced and impressive albums in his oeuvre.
