After one false start a few years ago, Celtic Thunder‘s front man – Keith Harkin – is finally making his Carleton debut with a solo show on Wednesday, August 23rd. Show time is 8 PM. For this date, Keith is selling a $30 general admission and a limited number of $50 VIP tickets that include a pre-show meet and greet.
Keith Harkin is an Irish singer songwriter and guitar playing minstrel who 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 eight years touring.
During his time touring the States, he gained recognition from Grammy Award-winning Producer, David Foster, who then went on to sign Keith as one of his first artists to Verve Records. Keith released his solo debut album with Foster and Verve Records, where they watched it soar to the number 1 spot on the Billboard charts.
While working on his solo career, Keith also has continued to perform as a lead soloist in Celtic Thunder. His role in that band has brought him to write and record a number of his own songs for the show, as well as perform for a vast audience worldwide, including President Obama and First Lady Michelle, along with numerous PBS specials.
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.
