The Soiled Dove - Denver
Tuesday, 14 March 2000


Not only had Luka Bloom arrived in Denver's Lower Downtown (Lodo) neighborhood, he had a new release to promote on an American tour for the first time in several years. Fans formed a long queue outside the Soiled Dove long before the doors opened in order to sit as close as possible to the stage to watch and hear this almost-legend of an Irish artist....

Bloom's performances personify human emotions - be they pain or joy - and evoke pathos to purge the audience and allow is members to start anew and leave feeling, as Bloom sang in his fifth encore, that 'the man is alive'. While it's often a long time between live appearances (or perhaps because of that time lag), a Luka Bloom concert is to be savored. His Denver fans, hungry for his voice, guitar work and wit, did just that.

Post Gazette - 24 March 2000

Music Preview:
Celtic singer Luka Bloom makes his way back from a major-label exile

The first and only time Luka Bloom played Pittsburgh, in 1992, it was a beautiful summer evening and the big doors of Rosebud were thrown open to the night air. He paced the stage like a fighter staring down the audience and pounding away at an acoustic guitar so laden with effect it sounded like an orchestra on stage.
