03/08/19 - Patrick Ball: Celtic Harp Player

Patrick Ball is one of the premier Celtic harp players in the world and a captivating spoken word artist. He presents a new show: "Come Dance with Me in Ireland – A Pilgrimage to Yeats Country."

"Come Dance With Me In Ireland," is a solo musical and dramatic performance based on the life and works of Ireland’s greatest poet, William Butler Yeats.

This concert is the story of an elderly Irish couple who had spent their entire adult lives in the States but have returned to Ireland to go on a "Yeats Country” tour. The husband had always loved Yeats’ poetry and knew much of it by heart. But, he is now suffering severe memory loss. The wife has arranged the trip in hopes that a visit to Yeats Country will help to revive some of those memories.

Patrick Ball performs the accompanying music on the legendary wire-strung Celtic harp. Made of maple, with 32 brass strings, it is tuned diatonically in the key of D and played with the fingernails. It is a splendid recreation of the great harps that were played in Ireland a thousand years ago.
