Irish folk singer Luka Bloom returns with a heartfelt portrayal of ten classic songs and two new tracks. Recorded in home studios, Head And Heart sounds organic and honest, featuring beautiful string and piano arrangements.

Danny Boy and The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face are perhaps the best-known covers here – as for the two originals, Bloom pays homage to his hometown with Liffeyside and gives tribute to loved ones lost on the haunting Give You Wings.

This album is the perfect soundtrack to your next dinner party, a rainy afternoon, or a great gift for Nanna’s next birthday. (LH)
