Patrick Ball – The Fine Beauty of the Island at the Blackstone River Theatre

NOV . 13 : Patrick Ball is one of the premier Celtic harp players in the world and a captivating storyteller . There ’ s only one person on stage , but as Ball performs " The Fine Beauty of the Island ," a whole culture appears before us . Through the voice of his harp , the lilt of his pennywhistle and the brogues of a pub full of characters , this contemporary bard casts a spell out of stories , researched history and the dark humor of the Irish . The play tells the story of “ The Vanishing ” of people of the Blasket Islands , which lie off the coast of County Kerry . 3 p . m . 549 Broad St ., Cumberland , riverfolk . org
