Master Celtic Harper Patrick Ball to perform Saturday, July 16 at Caltech

The Folk Music Society welcomes Patrick Ball back for an evening of beautiful Celtic harp music and stories. In Celtic Harp and Story Patrick rekindles the fire and wonder of an evening of Irish storytelling. For, in telling the marvelous old tales of wit and enchantment, and in playing the ancient, brass-strung harp of Ireland, he not only carries on two of the richest traditions of Celtic culture, but blends them in concert to create “a warm and magical performance.” All of the music is exquisitely moving. The Washington Post wrote that he “casts a haunting spell… a graceful and often bittersweet evocation of the past.” Find out more here. Patrick’s web site is
