There is a hungry ghost waiting for me
Should I take for granted, I am free now...
To smell the amarillo,
dream beneath some tree
Wait for the daffodil,
I am free now...
Movie World Premiere on Sat, December 2, 2006
The screening will take place at the Cyrus W. Irish Auditorium,
50 French Street, Lowell, MA 01852. General Admission $10.00.
The movie plot:
A white cop is acquitted of shooting an unarmed black man.
Violence erupts and the city is overcome with riots. Sirens echo
through the streets. Fires rip through businesses and homes. One
man is killed. Seamus O'Mallie, a 13 year-old white boy, watches
as his father is shot to death outside his home.
Months later, it's the Christmas season. While busking (street
performing for money) with his violin on Boston streets, Seamus
meets two strangers who will change his life. Ruby is a precocious
and sympathetic black girl with whom he falls in love. Oliver, an
older music instructor, becomes a father figure who presents him
with an opportunity to get off the streets and pursue a dream in
London. Now, Seamus must choose between his present feelings
and a promise for his future.

'Luka Bloom' by Merrilyn Simmons
...We've just come from the concert hall
and seen my very favourite bard,
a man of such rare spirit yeah,
Luka Bloom, Luka Bloom...
Merrilyn Simmons is a singer/songwriter from Melbourne, Australia.
'Earthbound' is her debut album and the thirteen songs are all originals.
Merrilyn picked up the Australian Songwriters Award (1998/99) for the album.
"I'm a Luka Bloom fan and this was written straight after his 1998 concert at the Melbourne Concert Hall.
Being the obsessive fan I am, I was totally excited and on a high. The song reflects on this concert and
an earlier concert in 1996 in St Kilda where I actually managed to catch his flowers. You can imagine
the state I was in. My partner had to lead me gently by the hand in the right direction.
It's all a bit of fun really this song, but definitely a tribute.
I think Luka Bloom is fantastic. Love his voice, guitar, songs, spirtituality, banter, and his live
shows are always loaded with feeling. He connects with people."
The Nits - Alankomaat Tour (1998)
by Dennis Versteeg
'Letter To E' - This quiet song was written for the wedding of Henk's Swiss friend Eric Facon...
The performance at Dutch radio program 'Twee Meter Sessies' was in first not very special, but after some talking with
another guest of the program, Luka Bloom, they decided to play the song again, this time together with Bloom. The version
that was the result was excellent, with the Nits playing the song they always do, but with Luka Bloom adding some moody
guitar sounds and whispered girl's names (that ended with an A!). Very cool to hear.

Twee Meter Sessie - 28.06.1998 - [5:24 mins]
A unique collaboration between Nits and Luka Bloom.
Both were present to record a Twee Meter Sessie for the radio
and they decided to do one song together.
Luka Bloom added backing vocals and some atmospheric guitar to this song.
