Irish singer/songwriter Keith Harkin performs a series of house concerts in the U.S.

Rock At Night often promotes other genres besides the usual rock and blues.  Since it is the holiday season, you all might want to get into the spirit by attending a house party concert.  Irish singer/songwrite KEITH HARKIN is making the rounds to various cities in America. Check out the information below:

Famed Irish singer/songwriter KEITH HARKIN is set to release a live, acoustic album In the Round on December 8, 2017 on Blue Elan Records.  Recorded and filmed this past summer at Full Circle in Venice Beach, CA – which HARKIN 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.”

HARKIN was part of the popular Irish music group, Celtic Thunder, for nearly a decade.  After being discovered by Grammy-winning producer David Foster, HARKIN 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.

For over a decade HARKIN has touched the hearts of fans with performances in venues large and small throughout Europe, North America and Australia. Now the artist gives fans the most intimate performances with exclusive, coast to coast house concerts this holiday season. Following last year’s sold-out Christmas house concert tour, HARKIN is once again embarking on this holiday fan favorite.  Beginning November 19 in Carlsbad, CA and running through December 22  in Vancouver, WA – HARKIN will share the holiday spirit with fans across the U.S. from Texas, Illinois, New York, Pennsylvania, Florida, California, Washington and more!

Performing house concerts as opposed to traditional club dates was Harkin’s idea. “I wanted to create a ‘Family of Fans’ with these shows,” says HARKIN, “I wanted people coming to these concerts to have a personal one-on-one experience with me, sharing food, wine and really spend time together before and after the band plays – it’s really an amazing way for me to connect with my fans.”

Tickets for KEITH HARKIN’s upcoming Christmas House Concert Tour are limited to 50 per show.  Fans are encouraged to check out for more information on each show and to purchase tickets.
