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!

    Hi Keith, I'd love to have you show me/us around Ireland. If only I could find a way to get there. It is on my bucket list,, but spent most of my bucket list money getting on 2 cruises with CT and coming to shows when they are within a few hours of Columbus, Ohio. Glad you are having some me time at home. Take care and enjoy.

    Wish I could go to the festival. I am putting all my money into a trip to Ireland for my daughter and I when she graduates from high school next year. As for the question about the guided tour " this lot of us" would love that.
    Glad to see you are enjoying your time at home. Take care of yourself.

    My husband and I went to Ireland for 3 weeks in 2005 and drove all the way around from Dublin, along the coasts and back to Dublin again. We could have done another 6 months! I'm a huge history buff and I just couldn't take it all in within that amount of time. It was not
    a group tour, we did what we usually do when we travel - book the first 2 nights hire a car and wing it from there. Sure we went to the tourist spots but also made sure we went to the less known spots so we could just mix with the locals. I would dearly love to hear the history, culture etc from a local and, well if you were the tour guide that would make it even more special! :-)

    Love your blog - even if it's in a micro font, but wonder why some comments are repeated so many times. Carol Wilsons comment is repeated 12 times for me. It's just curious.

    You're really asking if we might like to take a tour of Ireland with you in the lead? lol. Of course. Celtic Thunder. Keith Harkin. Ireland. I can't find anything wrong.

    I think if you were actually willing to host tours around Ireland you could easily fund any album you'd like to put out with the proceeds. There is no telling what your fans would pay for that privilege. If I had money, I'd spend it ALL to do that tour~!!!
    So glad to see your post and to read your FB updates on the grand time you are having at home. I love to see you happy. It seems that the combination of "Kelsey and Ireland" are a good mix for you!

    Awaiting that album, my copy of your first has died from overuse ;)
    Hoping for an Australian tour, its a dream of mine to hear your music live.
    All the best with all your plans.

    Keith the blog looks amazing! Sk funny you mention touring Ireland. My bucket list wish is to tour all of Ireland and Northern Ireland. My hometown is twinned with Aranmore Island, and it's been a dream since I was little to go to visit your beautiful country! :-) A guided tour would be amazing with you and Kelsey! Any suggestions on what to see and where to go if we ever make it there to visit?

    Yes, I would love to have a guided tour of Ireland. I just have to save enough money to get there.I see you are relaxing and having a lot of fun. I guess you are going to make things out of those pieces of driftwood. it makes great gifts. I can't get to the festival but will wait for you to come back to Hermosa Beach or somewhere South of LA. Take care love and safe travels.

    Glad the demons have been chased from your website ;) Great blog as usual. Would love to be at the festival in Colorado but don't see it happening this year :( A personally guided tour 'round Ireland by the one & only KH? Hmmm, I'll have to think on that..........NOT!! Would love to see Ireland thru your eyes sweetie. Keep that thought going, it's a good one. I can tell you're happy to be home........you mention it quite a bit...........relax & enjoy yourself. You work hard, you deserve some R&R.
