Since the release his classic debut album Riverside in 1990, people from all the nooks and crannies of the globe have taken the beauty of Bloom’s music into their hearts and minds. Taking the traditions of Irish musical storytelling and using the folk medium to comment on the issues of our time, Christy Moore’s kid brother, Bloom, writes beautiful songs about the issues he cares about. He is building a formidable archive for the next generation but shakes up the genre with clever chord sequences and arrangements, while retaining traditional Irish folk’s core values of storytelling and commentary.
