Patrick Ball: Come Dance with me in Ireland
`An American master of the Irish instrument, a peripatetic modern day bard, combining tale-telling, history and music into a seamless compound that reaches all ages and types of listeners.`
ŃSan Francisco Chronicle
"Come Dance with Me in Ireland: Encounters with W.B. Yeats" is a musical and dramatic performance around the life of W.B. Yeats. Join Celtic harpist and storyteller Patrick Ball for a harp-filled evening celebrating the life, works and quirks of Ireland`s greatest poet, William Butler Yeats.
Patrick Ball has been awarded grants for his work by the Zellerbach Family Fund and the California Arts Council and is the recipient of the Circle of Excellence Award from the National Storytelling Association. He tours extensively throughout the United States and Canada, is considered one of the premier Celtic harpers and storytellers in the world today. He has recorded nine instrumental and three spoken word albums which have sold well over one-half million copies collectively and earned national awards in both the music and spoken word categories.
