Irish-born and Savannah-based, Harry O'Donoghue enjoys the status of a musical and entertainment legend in Coastal Georgia. A professional performer for over 35 years, he has long supported Georgia Southern University, especially its Center for Irish Research and Teaching.
Loyal fans and new audience-members alike enjoy Harry's easygoing stage presence as he blends an expressive voice with masterful playing on acoustic guitar and bodhrán (the Irish hand-drum). His repertoire embraces Irish folk ballads, but also a variety of other genres.
One reviewer commented that Harry's "gentle" delivery of lyrics "paints compelling word-pictures" of the Irish experience — at home and abroad. A Harry O'Donoghue concert features traditional and original songs, as well as the artist's signature wry wit and adept storytelling.
With well over a dozen albums to his credit, Harry is comfortable across multiple venues, from the grand symphony hall to the intimate club or pub. Small wonder then that he has become a top-drawer presence on Norwegian Cruise Line sailings! He brings the best of Irish music and anecdote to capacity crowds, whether in Alaska, the Caribbean, or Central America. But Harry has a particularly warm affection for Statesboro's historic gem: the Emma Kelly Theater.
Over the years, such leading lights of the Irish music scene as Mary Black have sought out Harry as a co-performer. And his professional peers further respect him for fostering new Irish musical talent on his weekly Green Island Radio Show, a production of Georgia Public Broadcasting that reaches several million people.
