The World of Irish Storytelling

An acclaimed storyteller who tours extensively throughout the United States and Canada, Patrick Ball is also one of the premier Celtic harp players in the world today. His rare artistry is evident as he plays the ancient, legendary brass-strung harp of Ireland with its crystalline, bell-like voice, and shares legends filled with wit and enchantment. An illustration of the marvelous unity of Irish words, music and history, each performance carries the listener to another place and time, back when stories were an everyday occurrence in the life of a child. He transports his audience to a time when listening was as important as watching, when tales were told from one heart to another and when the sharing of stories and legends kindled imaginations and dreams. Ball brings to the performance stories fiery and tender, funny and magical that are a feast for the mind, the ears and the heart.
