Celtic Harpist Patrick Ball Performing at Blackstone River Theatre on November 20
World renowned Celtic harpist Patrick Ball is performing his new solo musical theater piece, The Fine Beauty of the Island, at the Blackstone River Theatre in Cumberland, RI on Saturday, November 20, 2010 at 8:00 p.m.
Tickets to the show are $12 in advance and $15 the day of the concert. For more details call 401 725-9272.
The performance tells the story of Ball's journey in search of the origin and meaning of an enchanting tune he heard one night in an Irish bar in San Francisco. This tune led him back not only to a Blasket Island community and culture “whose like will not be seen again,” but to a long-neglected corner of his own past.
