Celtic Thunder's Keith Harkin Live in Concert!

Posted on 04 Mar 2011

We have some exciting news for Celtic Thunder fans!  Keith Harkin and Emmet Cahill will be coming to the AETN Studios on Friday, March 11. 

The main purpose of their visit is to appear on AETN as we premiere Celtic Thunder's brand new show, Heritage.  You'll be able to enjoy that program on AETN that evening from 8:30-10:30, with Keith and Emmet joining us during the breaks to talk about Celtic Thunder, their careers and their scheduled concert at the Robinson Center Music Hall in Little Rock this fall. 

But after their on-air appearance, Keith will be performing a special acoustic show in AETN's Studio C beginning at 11 pm.  Tickets for this performance are $25 each.  A portion of the proceeds from this event will go to the AETN Foundation.  Doors will open at 10 pm.  Seating is limited to 175 people. 

If you would like to attend, have your credit or debit card handy and call 1-800-662-2386 to get your tickets.  It is very likely that this event will sell out quickly, so do not wait.  Get your tickets today. 

Sorry, we can NOT have guests in our studio during Keith and Emmet's on-air appearance.  Please enjoy this portion of their visit on AETN beginning at 8:30 pm.  In the event you are unable to watch the broadcast of Heritage that evening, the entire program, complete with Keith and Emmet's interviews, will be repeated on Monday, March 14 at 9 pm and Sunday, March 20 at 7 am. 

The AETN Studios are located at 350 South Donaghey Avenue in Conway.  Driving directions to AETN are available on the About AETN page of our website.  

We hope you'll be able to join us in Conway on March 11 and at the Celtic Thunder concert in Little Rock on November 6. 

Thank you for watching and supporting AETN!
