A LETTER FROM LUKA BLOOM
I have decided to offer the song
'Colourblind' on my website, as a mark of
sympathy and support to the people of Washington and New York; and as a
tribute to the great people worldwide, whose love and courage sustains us.
It was filmed last week in a garden in Dublin.

And on we go......
p.s There will be an announcement regarding the DVD in a few weeks. We're getting there!
Apart from my own work, there were only 3 gigs I got to this year which I loved.
Camille O'Sullivan in the Olympia in Dublin put on a fantastic gig. Anour Brahem
from Tunisia performed in the National Concert Hall in Dublin. This man's music
is so divine. His last record is on ECM, called les Voyages de Sahar (if that's the
right spelling). And then there was the Blue Nile in Vicar St. in Dublin. Paul Buchanan
is my favourite white male singer. Without effort, he moves me to tears. There is
an emotion in his delivery which is understated, and absolutely devastating.

28-06-2007Hows things? Just a little update from the Costa del Bog in deep Kildare.. We had such a blast launching TRIBE in Amsterdam, Utrecht and Brussels. The Amstelkerk in Amsterdam was a gorgeous setting for the event. It felt really good to sing there; and I say thank you to V2 and to everybody who helped get this record off to a great start in Holland and Belgium.
Next week I'm off to Norway for some shows including a Full Moon Festival. Sounds like a hippie lovefest......Hope so!
July will be mostly quiet, as it should be, because its summer in Ireland, and the bike and the sea are calling me.
However on Wednesday 18th of July I will be in Derry in the Millenium Forum, for a very special event, during which I will sing to welcome the Dalai Lama to this great Irish city. The event is the 10th birthday of Children in Crossfire. Here is the information: www.childrenincrossfire.org.
More in a while. Lots of summer love, and see ye down the road...
Wendy Grace from Uki in New South Wales, Australia, sent me this version
of a great bunch of kids singing 'I am not at war with anyone'. Wendy recorded it
with the assistance of Harmony Joy Church (a woman not a cult!!).

Don’t be afraid of the light that shines within you.
Since 1993, at the start of every February, I have watched large groups of men and
women gather in my home county of Kildare. They come to welcome the beginning
of spring. they come to Kildare because it is the home of Brigid, whose feast day is
February 1st. Brigid is the goddess of love, poetry, justice in prechristian Ireland,
and she is the patron saint of Kildare.

DREAMS IN AMERICA
I'm allergic to nostalgia. Long nights reminiscing about the good old days are a bit
of a yawn to me. Much more excited by the good now days, the next song, the next gig,
the seed of the next record....

What a year 2010 has been
Greetings from the Costa del bog.
Then off to Holland for a most interesting, challenging and rewarding tour of Dutch theatres
with Jan Douwe Kroeske. Jan Douwe has been playing my songs on his radio show(2 Meters)
for 20 years. He has 1500 hours of archive footage from an wide range of performers, songwriters,
bands. He created a theatre show based on his experience, and uses his footage to enhance
