Patrick Ball, harpist and storyteller in concert
Submitted By Shirley Sisk
The League of Volunteers (LOV) and the Newark Arts Council are excited to bring back, on Sunday, March 11, Celtic harpist and storyteller Patrick Ball, 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 a half million copies, earning national awards in both categories.
Born and raised in California, Patrick fell in love with the spoken word in college, afterwards making his way to Ireland where he discovered the Celtic harp. He later returned to California to achieve a MasterÕs Degree in History. Ball has written and performed musical theatre pieces and has been awarded grants for his work by the Zellerbach Family Fund and the California Arts Council. He is also the recipient of the Circle of Excellence Award from the National Storytelling Association. This is PatrickÕs seventh appearance at an LOV concerts since 1990, and we are thrilled to have him back! Complimentary refreshments are served during intermission.
