Hello,
It’s been quite a while since the last update, sorry about that.

We enjoyed two wonderful Tours over the Summer and our traveling companions were a delight. Both our Scotland/Ireland and Ireland only Tours were a great success and our thanks to all involved.

We are planning two Tours again next Summer; our annual O’Donoghue Tour will visit Ireland’s Southwest and midlands and Fr. Liam and Mary Collins will offer their Celtic Spirituality Tour once again. Information on both Tours can be found on the website Tours page and we are currently accepting bookings for both.

I’m off later this week to perform on board the Norwegian Dawn for five sailings, the first two from Boston to Bermuda and the other three from Boston to Quebec, Canada. I’m looking forward to seeing some good friends on board and hopefully some familiar faces among the audiences.

At this point in time I’m still performing regularly in Kevin Barry’s, Savannah and less regularly in Katie O’Donald’s in Bluffton, South Carolina. I am currently taking bookings for the 2019 calendar year and have thus far secured my dates with Kevin Barry’s, The Savannah Irish Festival, St. William’s Irish Night, Norwegian Cruise Line, Musical Explorers, and several others.

Should you be interested in an O’Donoghue performance for a group, fundraiser, house concert, community event, singer/songwriter showcase or speaking engagement please get in touch through this website, my Facebook Page, email or phone.

The Green Island Radio Show will shortly enter its 27th broadcast year and things seem to be running smoothly, and the show has a strong following…my thanks to all who listen and to all at GPB for  keeping us out there.

In keeping this ‘short and sweet’ I’d like to hope that all is well in your world and I also hope that our paths will cross again soon.

 Be well, be happy,

 All the best,

Good day to you and thanks for stopping by,

We’re just thawing out from a rare winter storm here in Savannah. We received quite a bit more than a dusting of snow and because we are ill prepared to deal with such weather we’ve enjoyed a few days of sitting in, watching telly, eating sumptuously, drinking to the point of excess and generally doing little or anything of value or importance…and here’s the kicker…no guilt! None, none at all…we simply could not go out, iced in, snowed under, impossible to drive, improbable to walk…what could one do in such a circumstance? What indeed? Loved it, it was wonderful, but we live here in the South, so enough already, we’re tired of it after just three days. Bring on the sunshine and warmer weather please. We’re forecast to be back in the 60’s by Tuesday, perfect for the second week in January I should say.

As we bid farewell to 2017 I must recognize that last year was the busiest I’ve ever been in this business. I got to perform at some terrific events and for some wonderful people, organizers and audiences alike…thank you one and all. I performed with Norwegian Cruise Line a total of sixteen weeks last year and although the traveling and being away from home was tedious the experience was great. I was in Alaska for the first time and also in Vancouver, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Baja California, Central America, the Bahamas, the Caribbean, Jamaica, the Caymans, Mexico, the Canadian Maritimes, Quebec and Puerto Rica. To even look at the list now is exhausting but I’m glad I was invited to perform with wonderful entertainers and work with enthusiastic and professional technicians and crew members. Thank you one and all and thank you NCL.

We took three Tours to Ireland last year and I’m delighted to say that each was a success. I spent five weeks at home in Ireland with these Tours and although Traci and I put a ton of work and effort into these trips it was, and always has been a joy to bring people over to my homeland.

We have two Tours going this summer. The first is a Scotland/Ireland Tour beginning on July 1st …we’ll spend four days in Scotland and four in Ireland and we’ll travel between countries on the new modern ferry from Cairnryan, Scotland to Belfast, Ireland…a sailing I always look forward to.

Our second Tour is ‘A Road Less Traveled’, beginning on July 18th. This Tour features eight nights in Ireland, visiting the West coast and North Midlands, with stops in Bunratty, County Clare, the Cliffs of Moher, Roscommon, Galway City and lots more. As always on our Tours we will stay in finely appointed hotels including the beautiful Kilronan Castle.

Information, registration forms, terms and conditions and the fully daily itinerary is to be found on the Tours page here on our website. Should you have any questions please feel free to get in touch with myself or Traci by phone or email or on Facebook or Messenger. We’ll be happy to answer any queries or concerns.

A few weeks ago I signed with a talent agency, a first for me even though I’ve been in the business for over 37 years. The reasons for seeking out and signing to a talent agency are simple…new adventures, new cruise lines, new experiences. I look forward to working with the members of TAD as we move forward.

I continue to perform in Kevin Barry’s, Savannah, Georgia and feel obliged to mention that after working there for 34 years it’s still the best Irish pub I’ve ever played in and it’s an honour to continue to do so. The only other pub that I perform in is Katie O’Donald’s in Bluffton, South Carolina. I’m there four or five times a year and it’s always great fun.

The demise of Irish Pubs as we knew them back in the 80’s, 90’s and 00’s is sad indeed.  They were less sports bars back then and were more attuned to Irish music and culture. I’m not at all suggesting that there are not some wonderful Irish Pubs scattered around, there certainly are. But as we traveling Irish musicians get older and the owners and managers of the   pubs retire or get out of the business something is being lost. They say what goes around comes around and I hope that’s the case. I hope to see some younger musicians latch on to the vast catalogue of Irish folks songs and then re-discover and revive them in their own style.

For me I suppose I have subconsciously moved on already. It was nothing contrived but opportunities presented themselves over the years and I found myself and my performances changing and evolving. While I miss the old days and playing all over the country in pubs filled with character I relish the challenge of performing with a symphony or a fund raising event  or in concert, bringing not only music but Irish humour, history, culture and storytelling to new audiences. I’ve been very lucky and I’m thankful every day and I look ahead with wonder and curiosity at what 2018 and beyond will bring.

On Georgia Public Broadcasting our show The Green Island Radio Show trundles merrily along, now going into year number 26. Thank you for listening and if you haven’t…well, well, c’mon now..!

Most of our music inventory is current, I’ve recorded over 14 albums thus far in my career…we don’t have all but we do stock most. We are offering some nice specials here on the website. And we have these terrific ball caps with the O’Donoghue logo…I say that because I collect ball caps and have become disillusioned with what’s being offered as I travel around…mass produced, ill-fitting baseball caps…not worth it no matter how cheap. I found a great cap at the Royal Naval Dockyard in Bermuda a few years ago. It’s light weight, supple and a nice fit. I bought a couple and had Bahama Joe’s here in Savannah find them, order them and personalize them. We have two colours: navy and yellow.

Right so, this is a longer update, longer than I thought it would be as I sat down…but there you go, that’s life.

I hope 2018 brings with it all you wish for including good health, a hearty helping of happiness and ample time in the company of family and good friends.

Best for now,

Harry O'Donoghue

Hello and thanks for stopping by,

I hope this finds you well, happy and healthy. Life is, for all of us it seems, very busy. There is much to do and seemingly little time to do it. Because I’ve been performing with Norwegian Cruise Line over the last several weeks I have not been glued to the television set, which is a truly wonderful thing. The negativity is rampant and doesn’t make any of us better human beings.

We are delighted to offer three Tours in 2018: the first is a Scotland / Ireland Tour on July, the second is our annual Ireland Tour on July 18 and the third a Celtic Spirituality Tour with Fr. Liam and Mary Collins on July 30. All information including pricing, daily itinerary and reservation forms can be found here on out Tours page. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with any questions.

As I mentioned I’m performing quite a lot with NCL and I’m enjoying the audiences, crew and fellow Guest Entertainers immensely. Thanks to all.

As I’m heading for the airport when I finish here I will make this mercifully short and say Happy Thanksgiving later this month and promise to write a more detailed Ramblings next time.

Again please email or Facebook message me with any questions and a big ‘Hip Hip’ for the Green Island Radio Show as it celebrates 25 years on the air this month.

Best for now, see you out there,

Hi,

I hope this finds you well. Summer is upon us once again and it’s heating up here in the American South East. I’m looking forward to heading off to Ireland in a few days with our 2017 Tours. We have three in all and I look forward to traveling the length and breadth of Ireland over the next few weeks showing folks the beauty of my homeland.

We’ve been working diligently to put in place our 2018 Tour and I’m pleased to say that we have it all together. You can check out the O’Donoghue Rugged West of Ireland Tour 2018 (temporary flyer) here on the website and I will also post it on my Facebook page. We will be accepting deposits and sign ons upon our return from Ireland in early August.

I’ve been performing quite a lot with Norwegian Cruise Line this year and the second half of the years looks to be more of the same. I’ve been working with NCL since 2001 and I must admit I enjoy it immensely…great folks to work for. My contracted sailings for the rest of the year are on our calendar page here on the site.

I’m also enjoying performing in Kevin Barry’s Irish Pub in Savannah…more now than ever. The venue continues to inspire me and it’s an honour to stand on that stage. Kevin Barry’s was voted Most Authentic Irish Pub globally last year and the competition, held in Ireland, continues again this year. They have added more categories and I would encourage you to please copy and paste the following link and cast your vote.    https://www.irishpubsglobal.com/awards-night-2017/   

I dare not comment on the social and political atmosphere in the country for fear of getting ostracized, chastised, or both…so I won’t!  The polarization continues unfortunately…but I for one am still very happy to be living in these here United States. This country has given, and continues to give, much to immigrants like me and I’m forever grateful.

The Green Island Radio Show celebrates 25 years of continued broadcasting on GPB this November and I’m delighted to have been at the helm through the years. Long may it continue.

I have re-issued my compilation album Folksinger , it’s available at my shows or here on the site. I fear the death knoll is sounding for the compact disc format…there may be but a few years left…and then…well, it’s anybody’s guess.

I also re –issued my O’Donoghue ball caps…I love ‘em, but then again I love ball caps. They have my logo on the front and are available in two colours, navy and yellow.

I also, for a lark, ordered some Groan Humour  ball caps. I sell them largely on the Norwegian contracts when I engage in more of the silly Murphy and O’Brian humour. Let me know if you are interested in having one.

That’s it for now, be careful out there. Be respectful, politics notwithstanding, have a good summer and I’ll hopefully see you on the road somewhere or out on the open water.

Harry

 

January 3, 2017

 Hello and Happy New Year,

 As we set off into another blue horizon we hope that 2017 will be a good year in many ways. We’re experiencing some political, social and economic turmoil at present but hopefully sane minds will prevail and our ship will be righted eventually. There has been, and continues to be, much discussion and heated debate about the current state of American and world affairs but this is not the format to engage such issues so I will leave it there. I do have hope however…

As I write this my bag is packed and I leave for San Juan, Puerto Rica tomorrow to join the Norwegian Breakaway until February 12th as she sails the warm climate of the Caribbean. I look forward to being back on board and my only regret is that I cannot be part of Joanie Madden’s Irish Cruise in February on board the Norwegian Escape. Cabins are still available on her cruise.

I’m also scheduled to perform on board the Norwegian Dawn for her April 23rd repositioning cruise from New Orleans to Boston and later in the year, on September 22nd on her Boston – Quebec sailings. Again I very much look forward to working with NCL and performing on board their ships.

In February I will be part of the 25TH Savannah Irish Festival  and as the ‘Irish Season’ approaches I’m ready for my various concerts, fundraisers, clubs, one night events  and of course Savannah’s annual Tara Feis Irish Festival in March. My full schedule can be found here on the calendar page of our website.

This summer we are delighted to present three Irish Tours: the first is an Irish Pilgrimage with Monsignor Edward Dillon of the Holy Spirit Catholic Church in Atlanta, the second is a Celtic Spirituality Tour with Fr. Liam and Mary Collins and the third our own annual tour, this year embracing Irelands South…it’s called The Southern Charm Tour. Again all related information is to be found here on the Tours page of our website.

The Green Island Radio Show continues to grow in popularity and it remains one of my favourite things to be involved in. You can listen on any GPB member station or online each Sunday night at 9.00PM, EST and at 10.00PM, EST on Wednesday evenings.

As a diversion and just for something different I’m trying to learn French. I did study it in school and feel it’s time to brush up and add to my understanding of this beautiful language. Time will measure my success.

I hope to embark on some new writings in the coming weeks. I’m not quite sure what the final goal will be but it has been suggested that some of my humorous and poignant offerings may be worth committing to print…again time will be the judge.

Thank you as always for your  support in this ever changing world…the journey continues, yours and mine. I hope to see you out there somewhere.

All the best,

Hello,

I hope this finds you well. We’re now in the autumn of the year and it’s almost Election time. Much has been said about this election cycle so there is little point in me adding my two cents worth. I’m scheduled to leave town in two days and must vote early, all of which leaves me in quite the quandary, nonetheless I’ll steel myself and off I will go tomorrow morning. I haven’t lost hope like many of my fellow citizen…still the horizon has looked much brighter, shall we say.

Our Ireland Tours were very successful this summer and we have packages together for two Tours in the summer of 2017. Information and full itineraries may be found on the Tours page here on our website. Reservation forms can be downloaded here also or we can email or surface mail all of the information to you or friends and family…please just let us know.

In 2017 Fr. Liam Collins offers a Celtic Spirituality Tour and our own Tour is Called Southern Charm. If my math is correct these will be our 39th and 40th Ireland Tours and we’re delighted to once again work with our Irish driver/guide and business partner Owen Mohan. Please look through the Tour information and contact us should you have any questions or concerns.

It seems that I’m performing more with Norwegian Cruise Line these days and I must admit I am enjoying it very much. I join the Norwegian Dawn in Boston this Friday, October 28th as she repositions to New Orleans for the winter. We’ll head south and stop at various islands in the Caribbean on the way. On January 2nd I will join the Norwegian Breakaway and once again sail towards the islands where I will transfer to the Norwegian Gem. They have me island hopping between these two ships until February 12th and then it’s back to Savannah to perform in Kevin Barry’s and at the Savannah Irish Festival.

In the interim Carroll Brown, Marci Shore and I will be on the road with our annual Celtic Christmas Tour. Details to be found shortly on the schedule page of our website.

On November 19th I will perform a concert in the Roasting Room in Bluffton, South Carolina. This concert will be more intimate and contain a lot more personalized material than my usual concerts. I hope people will find time to come join me for this one off event.

The Green Island Radio Shows continues to grow in popularity…even after 24 years. It continues to be a highlight of my career and I thank all involved.

I’m still working diligently on the reissue of my album Folksinger. It should be available at the end of the year or early in 2017.

That’s about it from my world…oh, except that I hope to study French in the next few months…will it take? Whonoze?

Thank you for your continued support and best of luck, best of health, may your God go with you and may your candidate win!!

Hello there,

This is just a very short update to let you know what’s going on in our world. Firstly let me say that I hope all is well in yours and that you’re enjoying the summer. It’s blistering hot here in Savannah but no worries, we fly out tomorrow for Ireland where the temperature is a balmy 68 degrees. We have two Tour groups this year beginning at the weekend.

I’ve had a most enjoyable first half of the year performing all over the place in concert, with Norwegian Cruise Line and on Joanie Madden’s Irish Cruise. Kevin Barry’s Irish Pub in Savannah continues to live up to its legendary status and The Green Island Radio Show is going from strength to strength.

We have two Tours  going to Ireland next summer, one is a Celtic Spirituality Tour with Fr. Liam and Mary Collins and the second is our regular Ireland Tour. Both Tour Flyers can be found here on the website and we will be accepting sign-ons as soon as we get back.

Thanks for all your continued support and live each day like it was your last…one day you’ll be right!!

 See you out there,

Harry O'Donoghue

Ramblings

Hello,

Once again I have dropped the ball with respect to the Ramblings updates and once again I offer my apologies. It seems I’m getting old, not so much in being tardy with these updates but more in observing the world around me. As a society we are willing to live in a world with much less decorum than before…or so it seems to me.

Oh, sure we’ve come a long way in our civil liberties, our right to live and let live, free speech, bear arms etc.  We live longer healthier lives, for the most part, have made great strides mechanically, technically and electronically and we are now very far beyond anything our grandparents might have dreamed.  But we’ve lost things too.  Take TV for instance. Live television now presents us with front row seats to a daily barrage of garish, tasteless shows, foul language, bad grammar, banal, sometimes idiotic commentary, and mind boggling opinions from guests and presenters dressed and primed and coiffed like they were attending the ball of their lives.  It’s nuts! What has happened to us?  Violence rules on TV and movies, sex is rampant on the most popular cable shows, our world famous super stars perform in what was considered years ago to be bedroom attire, our kids stroll around in lounge wear (read, pajamas) sloppy shirts, trousers and shirts rule the day and the new fashion for ladies is leggings…so tight almost nothing is left to the imagination. Some of these new items of clothing should come with a mirror if you get my drift.

What happened to tailored clothing…suits, pants, sports coats, jackets, dresses, and skirts, casual trousers…chosen to add class to the person and to the occasion. What happened to personal grooming, what’s wrong with being neat? See, I’m just getting old.  But they say what goes around comes around so you’d never know…!

Up until yesterday I was quite enjoying the Presidential Election. We’re all fed up with the status quo and we all want change, but our politicians seem diligent in their resistance…and so we have the 2016 free for all.

The candidates are like spoiled little brats in a schoolyard hurling insults and vulgarities at each other, it surely is something of a spectacle…however, from this fracas will, apparently, emerge the President of the United States of America and the free world…huh?

Right so, all that being said let’s move along. It’s been very busy these last six months…our Celtic Christmas Tour was successful. I had a blast performing with the Savannah Philharmonic on their Holiday Pops Concert in December.  I had what can only be described as a delightful time performing with Norwegian Cruise Line in January and February down in the islands. As usual I met some terrific entertainers, passengers and staff. My thanks to Sue Carper in Miami for affording me the opportunity to work with NCL these last fifteen years.

It was once again terrific working with Seamus Kennedy, Brendan Nolan, Roger Drawdy, Carroll Brown and Tom O’Carroll at the Savannah Irish Festival in February.

I’m in the middle of my concert season and I look forward to my upcoming performances at Tara Feis on March 12th along with Ciaran Sheehan, Cathy Maguire, Gabriel Donahue , Vonnie Quinn, the Savannah Ceili Band and the Savannah Philharmonic Chorus.  On St. Patrick’s Day I will be at Katie O’Donald’s in Bluffton, South Carolina during the day and in Kevin Barry’s that night along with Frank Emerson and Carroll Brown.

On March 19th I perform at Christchurch Episcopal in Dublin, Georgia and the following week I’ll be back on stage in my very favourite listening room…in Kevin Barry’s, Savannah, Georgia.

Please check out our calendar page for my full schedule.

The Green Island Radio Show is going very well and we have added many more listeners to our already sizeable audience. We air on Sundays at 9.00PM with a repeat on Wednesdays at 10.00PM on all 18 Georgia Public Broadcasting member stations, and online at www.gpb.org. The show has been running since 1992 and we have now well over eight hundred episodes.

Our two O’Donoghue Ireland Tours are sold out this year and we will begin planning the 2017 tours soon.

It’s not too late to join us on Joanie Madden’s Irish Cruise on May 28th. We sail north from New York City on board the Norwegian Gem with a host of Irish musicians, singers, storytellers and dancers.  Check out the cruise website at: www.joaniemaddencruise.com.
 
Please visit my website: www.harryodonoghue.com or my Facebook page if you have time, and leave a message, question, suggestion or inquiry about an O’Donoghue performance.  Thank you for your continued support and I’ll see you out there.

All the best,

Hello,

I hope all is well with you. Now that the St. Patrick’s Day festivities and Easter are behind us it’s time to look ahead towards the summer.

We have three tours going to Ireland this year. The first is a private Tour with the friends of the Savannah Philharmonic on June 17th. Conductor Peter Shannon will join us on our travels and this Tour is now closed. The second is a Celtic Spirituality Tour with Fr. Liam and Mary Collins on June 30th. We do have two seats still open on this Tour and we will close the Tour in the next ten or twelve days. Our annual  O’Donoghue Tour begins in Dublin on July 9th and we have a few seats still open on this Tour. Please get in touch if you are interested in joining us in Ireland this year. The full itineraries and further information are to be found on our Tours page here on the website.

On April 19th I begin my 2015 performance schedule with Norwegian Cruise Line. I will join the Norwegian Dawn on her repositioning cruise, sailing from New Orleans to Boston. I look forward to being on board again and seeing some friends on the entertainment, cruise and technical staff.

I’m also very much looking forward to being a part of Joanie Madden’s Irish Cruise, leaving from New York on May 16th. There are still cabins available even at this late stage. A nice seven day break might be just what you need. It’s hard to describe the fun of having over fifty Irish musicians on board and there will be sessions, workshops, concerts, singing and dancing galore. For further information please email Kevin Donovan at:  book@joaniemaddencruise.com or call: 1 855-474-7427

My new project Seasons of Love will be released this week, April 17th to be precise. It’s a concept CD that follows a love story from first meeting to the golden years. It contains the song Dance with you Daddy which has become very popular at my live shows. It will be available online here at the website, at my shows and digitally on CDbaby, iTunes and other digital media outlets.

The Green Island Radio Show is growing in popularity and can be heard on all GPB member stations and live online each Sunday evening at 9:00 PM with a repeat broadcast every Wednesday at 10:00 PM. We feature Celtic music in all its forms, from traditional to folk, ballads, contemporary, ethereal, orchestral, pop, rock and spiritual.

You can check out our Facebook page for recent happenings and photos. We do try to keep our schedule page up to date here but occasionally performance times and venues change so please confirm before coming out to see a show.

Thank you for your continued support and if you have travel plans this summer I hope you enjoy the adventure.

See you out there,

Hello and Happy New Year,

Let’s hope 2015 offers up all that we could ever wish for and desire…it’s a long shot I know, so don’t stop buying lottery tickets. Thank you one and all for coming to our Celtic Christmas shows and to all of my solo performances during November and December and if you didn’t, just ignore the above sentence.  Maybe next time!

I had to cancel my November shows in the Shannon Pub in Buffalo due to the major snow storm that hit, hopefully I can schedule some time to get up there before the summer. Thanks for your understanding.

We have three Tours going to Ireland this summer. The first is in June and has been specially customized for the Friends of The Savannah Philharmonic. Conductor /Director Peter Shannon will accompany us on this trip and we’ll visit scenes of his childhood in Cork and places in Dublin where he studied music as a young man. This tour will of course have a full sightseeing itinerary as well as some musical surprises arranged by Peter. Four and five star hotels will serve to accommodate us and we’ll spend the last two nights in the famous Dromoland Castle Hotel. This tour itinerary and brochure can only be accessed with a password. Please contact me to obtain the password. June 17 – 25, 2015.

Our second Tour is with Fr. Liam and Mary Collins and will serve to celebrate Fr. Liam’s 70th birthday. He’s a Tipperary man and so we’ll visit that beautiful county, spending the first night in the Aherlow hotel, nestled in the beautiful Glen of Aherlow. Then we’ll travel to the counties of Cork and Kerry and finish off in County Limerick. As with all our tours we’ll travel at a leisurely pace and enjoy splendid scenery, historic visits, sing alongs and humour along the way. We have chosen finely appointed hotels to accommodate us. An added feature is that we will spend the Fourth of July in Dingle, County Kerry. This Tour begins and ends at Shannon airport. June 30 –July 7, 2015.

Our own O’Donoghue annual Tour begins and ends at Dublin Airport.  We’ll spend some time in and around Dublin city before heading west to Galway where we’ll stay for two nights during the Galway Arts Festival. This is a vibrant city and even more so during the Arts Festival. We’ll enjoy the famous Trad on the Prom show on our second evening and then it’s off up to Sligo to visit the Ceidi Fields, the most extensive Stone Age monument in the world. After two nights at the Sligo Radisson Blu Hotel we’ll turn east and spend our last evening at Trim Castle Hotel, not far from the airport. Trim Castle is the largest Anglo –Norman castle in Ireland and was used during the making of the epic movie Braveheart.  All in all it promises to be a lovely time, four star accommodations, good companionship, beautiful scenery and a leisurely paced tour. July 9 -16, 2015

Please visit our Tour Page here on the website for more extensive information and please don’t hesitate to get in touch with any concerns. We do our very best to accommodate special requests. Our coach driver/guide on all three tours will be Owen Mohan. We’ve been working with Owen since 2001 and it’s always been, and continues to be, a pleasure.

I’m scheduled to perform on the Norwegian Dawn again this year. I will be part of the repositioning cruise sailing from New Orleans to Boston on April 19.

I’ll also be on the New England/Canada sailings. Four seven day cruises in all.
Boston – Quebec – September 11. Quebec – Boston – September 19.
Boston – Quebec – September 25. Quebec – Boston – October 2.

And lastly I will be on the Dawn repositioning cruise leaving Boston for New Orleans on October 30, 2015. I’m scheduled to perform on part of this cruise and may join the ship mid-cruise.

On May 16, 2015, I will join Joanie Madden on her fourth Folk ‘n Irish Cruise, sailing from New York City on board the Norwegian Gem. Joanie’s cruises are always a blast and there will be over 50 Irish musicians and dancers on board. Cherish The Ladies, Cathie Ryan, Tommy Sands, Gabriel Donohue, Dermot Hegarty, Guaranteed Irish, Ennis and loads more. For more information or to sign on please contact Kevin Donovan at 1-855-747-7427 or email him at kevin.donovan@wmph.com. The official website is www.joaniemaddencruise.com.

For my full itinerary please go to our Calendar page here on the website or check out my Facebook pages: Harry O’Donoghue and Harry O’Donoghue Music.

I’ve begun two new recording projects in Philadelphia with producer Gabriel Donohue. The first is a concept project that looks at loves journey through music and should be released in April. The second project is a full CD and will be released in the fall. It’s a pleasure working with Gabriel again, his talent is seemingly endless.

As ever, thank you for your support and I hope to see you out there.
