Patrick Ball: Celtic Harp & Story
Saturday, November 5, 8:00PM
Occidental Center for the Arts, 3850 Doris Murphy Court, Occidental

OCA is pleased to welcome back to our stage the world renowned Celtic harpist and modern day bard Patrick Ball. In Celtic Harp & Story, Patrick Ball rekindles the fire and wonder of an evening of Irish storytelling. The passion of the Irish for eloquence and wordplay, their deep devotion to a mythical past, and their ability to find joy and humor in a dark and often supernatural world make for stories unrivaled in the world of the oral tradition. Patrick Ball weaves the marvelous old tales of wit and enchantment together with ethereally gorgeous instrumental harp melodies into a warm and magical performance that will leave the audience spellbound.

Patrick Ball tours extensively in the US, Canada and worldwide to great acclaim. Luckily for us, he lives in Sonoma County with his wife artist Susan Ball, and his beloved dog Max. Do not miss this spellbinding evening of glorious harp music and lyrical storytelling filled with laughter and mischief, politics and magic by this American master of the Gaelic narrative and instrument!
