New Storytelling Season Brings Ireland to Indy Join Storytelling Arts of Indiana on a Pilgrimage to Yeats County

Storytelling Arts of Indiana kicks off its 32nd season as the premier organization in the state that promotes and protects the art of oral storytelling. Storytelling Arts brings some of the most sought-after performers in the nation to entertain Hoosier audiences with a diverse lineup of stories. They’re hosting “Come Dance with Me in Ireland: A Pilgrimage to Yeats County” told by Patrick Ball on Saturday, September 21.

Indianapolis, IN, August 13, 2019 --( Patrick Ball tells the story of a couple who returns to Ireland after living in the U.S. to go on a "Yeats County" tour to try to recapture some swiftly fading memories of their youth. They visit many of the places beloved by the country’s greatest poet William Butler Yeats: Innisfree, Coole Park and Drumcliffe, to name a few. They hear again some of his most beautiful poems, “The Lake Isle of Innisfree,” “When You Are Old,” and “The White Birds.” And their story unfolds... Ball performs the accompanying music on the legendary wire-strung Celtic harp. Made of maple with 32 brass strings, it is diatonically tuned in the key of D and played with the fingernails. It is a splendid re-creation of the great harps that were played in Ireland a thousand years ago.

About Patrick Ball
Patrick Ball is one of the premier Celtic harp players in the world and a captivating spoken word artist. He has recorded nine instrumental and three spoken word albums, which have earned awards and sold well over 1.5 million copies internationally. In the spring of 2016 and 2018, Ball earned a Visiting Fellowships from the Moore Institute at the National University of Ireland to study the life and works of William Butler Yeats. He spent a commendable amount of time in the Archives and Special Collections, but admits he spent a great deal more time in the pubs of Galway and rambling around Yeats County. Ball likes to think this performance has the savor of all these influences.
