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.

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.

 

 

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.

    Ideas for the HHQ shop, you ask? I would LOVE for you to sell some of your Mum's soap here in the states. I believe that it would be a huge seller if the shipping prices were more affordable.

    Ops, submitted my comment by accident, didn't finish but here it is. Can't wait for On Mercy Street to hit the cities! Hoping you will come to Topeka, KS as we have some awesome fans around this area and great choices for you to play at, The Irish Pub downtown would be a great gig, or the Topeka Civic Theater holds lots of fans, cool place, great accoustics, nice digs, or there is the Huge Stage and lots-s-s of room for thousands of fans at the Expo Center w/a great hotel right next to it, the Plaza Hotel. Please, Please, Please, try to come (yes I'm nagging but I can't travel far with my bad back surgery and I need a Keith fix! My bad). But you know that, keepin my surfboard warm next to my fireplace, looking up a seeing your name written on it keeps me smiling. Yes, I talk to much but I'm old so I can get away with it, right? I have some great Irish jewelry and sweaters but want more, bring it on, I can't get enough. How about a KH necklace of sorts, something I can wear around my neck, close to my heart, I love you sweetie, or some rings (size 10) would be great, your artistic (Gemini) like me so go to it man, bring me some KH stuff. Ok, I'm off of here could talk forever if I could (being alone does that to us old folks) Be patient with me Keith, I can't wait to see what great thing lie ahead for you, it will all be good! Keep safe man. LOL XXXOOO P.S. Usin my X-Husband email, my computer is down, bummer. Feel free to use his E-Mail address cause things are ok between us and I spend most of my time with him. He is a keeper, divorcing was a big mistake for us but Celtic Thunder and of course YOU got me through a bad patch. Thanks for all you do, it is deeply appreciated. I'm out of here----------!

    Hi, Keith. My name is Kris and I both follow and play Irish/Folk music here in Minnesota, USA. I'm going to go for an idea and post this here. After all, nothing ventured, nothing gained. I want to make a pitch for you to bring your tour of On Mercy Street to Minneapolis, Minnesota. I can think of three potential places to check out off the top of my head: First Avenue has two or three awesome possibilities for a venue, The Dakota Jazz Club (I just recently saw Scythian there ), and if you want a largish, but more of a pub atmosphere, Kieran's Irish Pub. Now if you want arena venues, there's The X-cel Center and The Target Center. I know you've been here before with Celtic Thunder. Maybe you can find something else to "liberate" from that Tai restaurant? ;) PLEASE give us serious consideration! I'll start talking it up with friends immediately! In the meanwhile, thank you for all your music and for sharing some of your activities with us! Kris Perry

    My daughter and granddaughter just gave me your Keith Harkin CD for Mothers Day! I absolutely Love It and can't wait for Mercy Street!
    Am going to check out the Irish Festival in CO......would give anything to be able to attend. My neighbor is also a big Keith fan, told me she
    Read somewhere that you were going to be in Los Angeses in Sept. Is this true?? We'll definitely be there!!

    so glad you are getting a wee rest in your beautiful country...the pictures are great. I have been to Ireland a couple of times and was completely
    Overwhelmed by the beauty of the land and the people! Cannot wait to return someday with my granddaughter with whom I saw the Best of Celtic
    Thunder in Los Angeles in Feb. She is a big fan of Damian because he was her favorite on Glee.

    Love you...Hope to see you soon.
