Harpist Patrick Ball Performs at Blackstone River Threatre on October 14

Renowned Celtic Harpist Patrick Ball is performing "A Pilgrimage to Yeats Country" at the Blackstone River Theatre in Cumberland, RI at 8 p.m. on Saturday, October 14, 2017.

Tickets to the show are $15 and can be purchased at the venue the night of the show.

Ball's show about the Irish poet W. B. Yeats combines the age-old traditions of storytelling, poetry and verse, and music  and dance.  Yeats, founder of Ireland's National Theatre, delved deeply into the culture of Ireland's peasantry when shaping his body of work, which helped him win a Nobel Prize for Literature in 1923.

Here is a schedule of upcoming concerts at Blackstone River Theatre.
