Inch musician readying guitar and Guinness for special St Patrick’s Day gig

DONEGAL singer songwriter Keith Harkin is returning to Ireland to play a special livestream show in his pub at Glack House on Inch Island this St Patrick’s Day.

Growing up singing in pubs with his father, Keith is coming home with his own young son to reinstate the family tradition.

Currently residing in Portugal, Harkin will return to Ireland to play this special show in a pub he built out of an old barn.


Harkin said for him St Patrick’s Day is all about tradition.

“It’s about family, music and a good Guinness. When I decided to make this St Patrick’s Day Special, of course I had to do it in Ireland with all these ingredients,” he said.

The special performance, in celebration of St Patrick’s Day and Keith’s homecoming will feature traditional Irish songs, his own songs and some covers.

Over the last 15 years, Keith and his musical talents have brought him across the world many times over, including shows for President Obama at The White House, Sir Richard Branson on Necker Island and performing national anthems at The Garden for The Boston Celtics to name a few.

During his time touring the states, he gained special recognition from Grammy Award-winning producer David Foster who signed Keith to Verve Records.

His debut solo album reached the number one spot on the Billboard charts in both the United States and Canada.

The show is set to begin at 5.30pm and can be live streamed via
