Wooooowooow-weewhaa!  what a sound!

“Wooooowooow-weewhaa!”

 

 

So I done that showcase gig in London Sphere Studios last week.  There were a few other bands there… all looking & sounding amazing. I was on last with the one and only rocking badass band ‘“the Linda’s” & Sam Swallow from “the Hoosiers” on Keys.  

 Wooooowooow-weewhaa!  what a sound!  Its funny When you're

headlining a show and the band and myself only got to run through 2 of the 8 songs once for the first time in 9 months haha.  Old hat to a group of guys who play best when winging it. ;)

We started out the set with the title song “Mercy’” and finished with an acoustic Number Pat the guitarist wrote called “Risk the Fall.”  It was a great night altogether.  Massive shout out to Andy and Gav who threw the bash and Lewis who done sound all night… cracking night all round! 

 

Also on the night had a nice chat Ayala with Irish Television, coming to a screen near you very soon, I may have done a wee acoustic number too… ;)

 

Were shooting  a load of footage for my Kickstarter campaign today… Its taking way longer than I expected as everything does but thats just the way it goes… still shooting to have the release of “On Mercy Street” for August.  It's all go go go!  

 

Also for all you guys coming to the Rocky mountain Festival I’m gonna have a load more new merchandise for you guys to have at the Festival!!! some new shirts and a few other wee tricks that you are gonna love?  Are you coming to the festival?  There are rumors that I may be playing another night… they want to make sure that there is plenty of interest in it though!! so let them know you want to see me rocking out more than once!!!

What kind of songs you want me to play at the festival???  Any special songs that you want if your coming?  Let me know and i’ll try and get your song mentioned!! ;)

Few new album’s from my friends are now out and ready for the pleasure of your ear’s….

Barry Kerr “Boy in a Boat” is out. This album is freaking awesome, I was there whilst a lot if it was being made, and if your lucky I might get Barry to play one at the festival in Colorado?! 

 Paddy Nash and the Happy Enchiladas have also just released another album that they have put their blood sweat and tears into, a freaking good group of people that you will enjoy hearing to no-end!

    The idea of you as a tour guide around Ireland is just awesome but not sure how many tour busses you would need to house all of your fans that would want to participate. Hmmm.... maybe another business in there somewhere... Harkin Irish Tours or HIT for short.... (as if you don't have enough on your plate already). Best to you and glad you're getting some rest and no more health worries.

    Hi Keith, love the blog. Waiting patiently for "On Mercy Street", to be released. You're so talented, and innovative. Good luck with everything you do.

    Would love a tour of around Ireland with you as the guide. It is good that you are home and enjoying your time off, relaxing and spending time with your family and Kelsey. Wish I could be at the festival in Colorado, but the budget just won't let me. I just have to hope that you have a solo tour in Kansas City.

    WOO HOO You have been a busy busy bee.. Glad you finally got the site up & running. Looking forward to Mercy Street. Can't attend the Colorado Irish Festival BUT if you decide to do the tour around Donegal & Ireland, PLEASE give me at least 1 years notice so that I can start squirreling away money.

    Don't think the pesky leprechauns are quite done yet. Comments are being posted multiple times. Oh well, that's ok. I am still working on coming to the festival. I want to go in the worst way! Just have to scrape up the cash and the nerve to travel on my own. I'm a widow and have had to learn to do things by myself. As far as the guided tour, count me in! That is really the only thing on my bucket list - a trip to Ireland! Are we touring in the green VW bus? :D

    Thanks for keeping us informed. Hope to see you next month in Colorado.

    Thanks Keith! Still having a wee bit of trouble with the site but glad I could get in through the CT site. Can't wait for the new things at HHQ! Awaiting the arrival of my Shivon soap and I am loving the HHQ sunnies! Worth every cent - they are fabulous! Ready for the Kickstarter launch - standing by! Hope you got a chance to enjoy the Smithsonian Music Book! Next I plan to get you a DC Emerald Society tee shirt - my son in law is a DC firefighter and is in the bagpipe group - still learning but he enjoys it! Looking ahead: On Mercy Street!!
