Wooooowooow-weewhaa!  what a sound!




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!

Amongst all that been going on I've been heading away every chance i can get in my van around donegal surfing and hiking… Its good to be home… I’d love to show you guys around here some day… you think you lot would want a guided tour holiday from yours truly around Ireland? ;) just a thought

    By the way, don't cut your hair short and hope you leave it hanging down when you tour and not tying it back. You look so different now that you re not in Celtic Thunder. I really love you in that band. But the beard and mustache can go!LOL! I hate them on any man. And your face is far too beautiful to cover up.

    Hope to see you in Los Angeles on your solo tour. And I don't mean Riverside! Hopefully in Woodland Hills or at the Orpheum Theater. I hope you will play "Tears of Hercules" and Don Henley's "End of the Innocence". Every couple has a song and that one was ours. Not together anymore but the song still is. Hope you and your wife are very happy. I love your blog.

    I have been listening and watching you since I was introduced through Celtic Thunder in 2008 Keith. You are an amazing individual, so talented and you have such a sense of warmth and love that resonates from you. I will be buying you CDs for sure and yes I would love a tour! As an American that cannot travel due to disabilities, I will never get to see Ireland, England or Scotland in my lifetime, but I have always wanted to since I was old enough to dream. My heart definitely would be at home in Ireland. Thank you for all you do and Congratulations on the engagement to Kelsey! All the Best and Le grá agus dearfach vibes ó Ohio , U.S.A.

    Love reading your blogs. I am so happy for you. Never heard the rumors about you and Kelsey. Very thankful for that. I love hearing the news from you.. Tell her to not pay attention to what some people write to you. I knew there was something special happening in your life. I have never seen you so happy. I hope you will be in Philadelphia, Harrisburg, or ever Hershey sometime when you are on tour this year. We would like to meet this girl of yours.
    We did see CT in Hershey in the spring. It was great. First time with out George but you guys made it special. Like everyone we miss him.
    We did not do meet and greet. Money was tight. I hope to do meet and greet if you will be near us. We both would love a guided tour of your home town. It would be crazy fun. Take care of yourself and of Kessey.

    Keith, exactly where is this fest in Colorado that I would LOVE TO COME to? Been down with my back (again) but I have perked right back up and ready to travel. It's just a hop away from Topeka, KS (bit of a road drive) to Colorado. My song(s) pick for the fest, a no brainer "Sound of Silence" and "Daisy Fields". OMG you rock with any song that you see fit to knock out. What a crackin good time the fest will be, can't wait to see you (promise not to throw my arms around ya again). As for KH products, I would go wild to see some screen printed Tee's with YOU surfin'...just saying...also a calendar for 2016 with pics of you every month, what a treat. It's a given I would buy much more KH stuff. Can't get enough of you. Yeah, I know, I'm the old gal from Kansas with a Surfboard (signed by you) but hey, one can dream. Use to surf in Hawaii a lot, smaller waves for me, none of the good stuff like shootin the tube, I left that up to the pros (you are one of them). Hang 10 anytime for me baby! The surf is always up, in my head, the memories never go away. Hiking, not so much, except when I was in Basic Training at Lackland AFB, TX. Right in there with the men, scratching and clawing through it all, came out ok on that. Now I'm just a lady "Veteran" of the Air Force and miss the traveling. Again, I've talked to much but "seriously" would you expect anything less from me. My bad! LOL XXXOOO Gotta Go.................later Keith.

    Looks like you're having an amazing time at home. Thanks for the pics, almost like a guided tour ;)
    Reading about earthquakes and such on the US west coast. Glad we don't have to worry about you falling off into the ocean now. Seriously looking forward to On Mercy Street and Kickstarter. Love a good group project!

    Will love to read your blogs. Can't wait for On Mercy Street to come out and can't wait to help you with your kickstart campaign. Would love to see more pictures of you and Kelsey together. You make a beautiful couple and the love you have for each other glows on both of your faces have a fantastic day today. Can't wait for your next update. Love to both you and Kelsey and your family.
