Irish singer/songwriter and guitar playing minstrel Keith Harkin returns to TOC Concert Hall. Don't miss your chance to hear Keith perform in the most intimate concert venue in town.
Keith Harkin has been singing his way into the hearts of music lovers since the wee age of four. His musical talents have brought him across the world from the UK to Canada to Australia to America and back, over and over again in his past years touring. He was part of the popular Irish music group, Celtic Thunder, for nearly a decade. After being discovered by Grammy-winning producer David Foster, he signed to Verve Records and released his self-titled debut solo album in 2012 where it became the Number 1 best seller on iTunes in addition to reaching Number 1 on the World Music Chart in both the U.S. and Canada. Harkin's sophomore recording, On Mercy Street, was released in 2015, followed by his 2016 holiday release, Nollaig, both of which also reached Number 1 on Billboard's World Music chart.
Keith released his latest, live, acoustic album, In the Round, December 8, 2017 on Blue Elan Records. Recorded and filmed this past summer at Full Circle in Venice Beach, CA - which he now calls home, In the Round captures Harkin's longstanding ability to conjure intense emotions coupled with his sheer musical talent. The concert and interview segments will be released on DVD in March of 2018. In the Round brings 14 special tracks straight from the soul of a "wandering" musician from Northern Ireland. Highlights include the exciting thrill of new love in past hits like "Lauren & I" and "I Remember It All." The album also features two new tracks (co-written with Eagles songwriter, Jack Tempchin) in addition to a cover of the Metallica hit, "Whiskey in the Jar."
Recalling the special night when In the Round was recorded, HARKIN explains, "I was with Celtic Thunder for a great 10 years, but I never got to actually show what I do best. A lot of people didn't know I could even play three chords on guitar, much less hold a whole concert together on my own. They didn't know I wrote my own songs. So, the time finally came for me to show that side of me."
When Keith isn't touring or recording, you can catch him at the beach surfing or continuing the gypsy travel life from adventure to adventure. But always with a guitar nearby.
