Journey to the West of Ireland with this solo, dramatic performance based on the life and works of William Butler Yeats.
Patrick and Peter Glazer (Woody Guthrie's American Song) were given a Fellowship last year by the National University of Ireland in Galway to study W. B. Yeats. They spent a bit of time in the archives and a lot more time rambling around the countryside and in and out of pubs. The result is "Come Dance with Me in Ireland: A Pilgrimage to Yeats Country,” which tells the story of an elderly Irish couple who lived their adult lives in the states but return to Ireland for a "Yeats Country” tour in search of...well, that would be telling.
Join Patrick on this journey to the West of Ireland for a dramatic evening of music, memories and Ireland's greatest poet.
Patrick Ball is one of the premier Celtic harp players in the world and a captivating spoken word artist. He has recorded nine instrumental and three spoken word albums which have sold well over one-half million copies internationally and won national awards in both the music and spoken word categories. In playing the ancient, legendary brass-strung harp of Ireland and performing marvelous tales of wit and enchantment, he not only brings new life to two cherished traditions, but blends them in concert to create “a richly theatrical and hauntingly beautiful performance.”
