London Bound**

“LONDON BOUND”

 

Headed to London in the morning to kick of the start of the promotion for “On Mercy Street.”  Sitting in a local coffee shop in Derry  bleeding their internet dry, listening to the final Master of the new album only to realize there is a bum note on one track… hahaha… back to the studio I go.  Rome wasn't built in a day.  Once thats fixed that is it! We are done and one step closer..... to the final product.  Art work is also nearly finished just a “thank you” note and were there  It looks amazing, they made me look really cool.

made me look really cool.

 

 

London tomorrow night to play with the most bad ass band I've ever played with “The Lindas” they are the band that played on the record and the good people I’m playing with tomorrow night… Haven't lifted a guitar in a week, so I bette get my lugs around one tonight.

Also i’m doing an interview with the talented “Music of Ayala,” for an Irish TV program, its gonna be a good weekend!

 

“The Very Best of Tour” is now well and truly over.  What a whirlwind of a tour it was.  52 shows of awesomeness.  I can’t thank each and everyone of you lot enough for coming out to watch us play.  Thank you, thank you & thank you.  I’ve said it once and I’ve said it a million times without you guy’s I would never be able to do what I love doing.  Thanks for spending your precious time and hard earned money with me on the road, on music, my shows and at www.HarkinHeadquarters.com  It truly is appreciated.

Even though the tour was amazing I’d be lying if I was to say I wasn't excited to come home… It was a long stint for me… I Was basically on the go for 9 moths straight.  A bit burnt out to say the least! But all good now, getting rejuvenated and ready to rock the socks off “On Mercy Street” in the fall.  Home is awesome! it hasn't stopped raining at all haha.  It’s so good to be home though… Ive been out in my camper van, done some fishing, some hiking, waterfalls, Guinness, making soap with my Mom & Dad in their www.shivonsoap.com shack and plenty of Ireland.  There is no place like home.

    Good morning, Mr. Keith. Great to read the new blog. You asked for ideas for the Irish section of Harkin Headquarters...would love to see simple Irish crosses done in wood, sterling silver, crystal or combination thereof.
    You are such an eloquent man in your thanking of all. That is truly lovely!
    Just one more quick note..several of your co-shorts of Celtic Thunder will also be playing at the Rocky Mountain Irish Music Festival. Sure you are aware, but in case you weren't....
    Have a great weekend!

    Can't wait for "On Mercy Street" and so glad you were able to rest and restore some energy! Also got to order a couple more things from HHQ this morning - love all my treasures and looking forward to some Irish items. Not sure what I want but since I have bought so much HHQ stuff so far I'm sure I'll love what you select! Excited about the tour - keep us posted. My credit card stands ready for "On Mercy Street"!!!!

    Good to hear from you this morning. Sounds like a wonderful vacation at home and still busy, busy, busy. I know I speak for others when I say that we are waiting anxiously for the release of the album ( we will take it even with a dud note) and the solo tour. Enjoy your special time with your family and friends but we hope that you don't get so comfortable on the island that you don't want to come back to us :/
    Hope your visit continues to be awesome and I hope that the rain lets up and you get some sunshine and blue skies. Get lots of inspiration to pump out some more fantastic songs for us, your adoring fans.
    Love ya, Captain!

    Seriously excited for the release of On Mercy Street!!! Hope you can schedule a show in the Southeast area (Atlanta, GA or Charlotte, NC).
    Continue to enjoy your downtime at home with friends and family. RELAX as much as possible. Though knowing you, that probably isn't possible, for very long anyway. Work will come quickly enough and you'll be on the go, go, go, again!!

    Love from South Carolina,
    Angela

    There certainly is no place like home. Happy to hear you are relaxing and enjoying family and friends back home in Ireland. You do have a beautiful country. Visited there last September. It was wonderful! Had a fantastic time. Can't wait to hear your new album and hope your fall tour brings you close to my area in NE PA. :)

    Glad you have gotten some rest the last couple of weeks because it looks like you are not going to get much the rest of the year!!! Looking forward to "On Mercy Street" and hoping you come to Atlanta!!!! I agree that some Irish crosses would be a great item to add to the website!!!
