My First Blog

So the new website is finally here. Im delighted to share with you a ton of new pics, some new footage, and more Importantly the name of THE NEW ALBUM.  Last year was a crazy year of massive ups and massive downs.  My new record which I can’t wait for you to hear is defiantly the part of the year I’m most excited about.  Im back out on the road with Celtic Thunder right now. Whilst I’m on the road I’ve been busy as heck…

Finishing this website, Harkin Headquarters, Mixing the new album and the biggest task of all is getting ready to go on a massive solo tour this Sept for 3 months.  

When it comes to booking tours, organizing shows, money settlement’s, paying wages, booking hotels, equipment, videos, PR, to name but a few... I organize it all myself. Its a monstrous task but someones gotta do it.  his tour is different to the rest I’ve done. I will be going out on the road with a full band!! Yes a  FULL BAND!  Playing all the tracks from my new album “On Mercy Street”, some old tracks & a few more surprises. I can’t wait. I love it. I love nothing more than getting on a stage and playing my own music. To me thats what its all about.

This tour is gonna be awesome. My band are all amazing musicians. Well be playing in the coolest of venues and well all be in Mary my van for 3 whole months… there's even talks of hitting OZ afterwards… (not promising, but watch this space.)

Harkin Headquarters, is gonna have about 3 more sections on it by that time too, I have a few more places up my sleeve too that i think you guys are gonna love.  Its funny, but the HHQ has now given me a reason to wander into even more countries that I never thought I would be going.  HHQ  makes me delve even deeper into the locals lives and cultures of a country.  I love it, and i really hope that your enjoying the adventures and places that I’m bringing you to.

Last week i recorded a video for Blair. At the age of 6, Blair was diagnosed with Sanfilippo Syndrome.  Blair is 12.  Her life story can be found at www.TheBlairBanner.com There is promising research and we are close to finding a cure. A cure that could help Blair and other children with Sanfilippo.

One thing that comforts Blair is music and songs. 

Here is the song i played for her...

I’m delighted to show you the new website, tell you about the new tour, the name of my album, Harkin Headquarters, new music and new pics.. Well you get the picture.

I’m writing this from a frozen buss on a side walk in Kansas City. Remember, “Keep On Rolling.”

    I want to wish you the best of luck on this new adventure you have embarked on. I have watched you for years with CT and have gotten acquainted with you through YouTube and the music you love. I also saw through one of your video's that you have a daughter named Blair with Sanfilippo Syndrome. I need to learn more about it and will click on the link you provided above.
    Again, the best of luck with your new album "On Mercy Street" that I will be looking for on iTunes for my download. Keep on rollin' and please don't give up being a part of CT....I know I am not the only one that loves you with the other lads.

    After reading "The Blair Banner" I think I mistakenly thought Blair was your daughter as stated above. If I am wrong about that, I apologize..

    Keith, I am very happy for you and proud of you! I love all that you do and represent, your voice and talent tops it all! I finally have found a musician that is the perfect fit for my taste, you are so real, genuine, true to your fans and a great entertainer! I follow your journey every day and its a honor to be blessed by your music. I really appreciate how much you share with your fans and give us a behind the scenes view of your adventurous life. Thank you for all you do, your website and content is beautiful, and I love the new album title. I am coming to San Diego this thursday for my birthday to see you guys and friday, I am bringing my family to LA too see you. Hoping one of the nights I will see you in the VIP. We have sound check and VIP tickets to both. I am excited you are touring later this year, I really liked the Full Circle venue in Venice, hopefully that will be one of your stops. This time, I will bring my whole family and a load of friends.
    Love ya bunches from Ojai, Ca
