Biography

Keith R. Harkin (born June 10, 1986) is a singer/songwriter and multi-instrument musician (guitar, piano, banjo, & bass) hailing from Derry, Northern Ireland. In 2006, Keith was the lead in BBC’s “Dha Theanga” and also wrote and recorded songs for the show. Keith has been a musician all his life and has supported artists like John Martyn and David Kitt on their Irish tours.

He has played at numerous festivals including Tavistock, Glasgowbury Music Festival, Gasyard Feile and Derry Feis (which he has won numerous times). Keith counts legends like Led Zeppelin, Fleetwood Mac, John Martyn, Nick Drake, The Kinks, The Beatles, The Beachboys, Tom Waits, Jack Johnson and Paul Brady as musical influences. BBC Radio Ulster even called him the ‘Irish Jack Johnson’.

Keith received his biggest break when he auditioned for Celtic Thunder (a.k.a. Celtic Man) in Dublin and won a spot in the quintet. His song, ‘Lauren & I’, was even chosen as one of his solos during the shows.

Keith is an avid surfer and a lover of Guinness, WOMEN and traditional Irish music.
