CA - San Mateo LEGENDS OF THE CELTIC HARP in San Mateo with Patrick Ball, Lisa Lynne & Aryeh Frankfurter
Three of the premier Celtic harpers in the world take you on a joyous, dramatic musical journey deep into the myths,  legends and history of the Celtic Harp. You will experience breathtaking music, humor and folklore on Irish harps, Swedish Nyckelharpa and much more..

The first half of the program weaves myths, memoirs and vignettes with works by anonymous composers, as well as pieces by Turlough O'Carolan (1670-1738), a blind harpist known as the "last of the Irish bards."  In the second set, Ball will relate the story of Gwilan, a young Irish harpist who traveled between rural villages, serenading folks with her wonderful gift of music. The story was written by Ursula K. Le Guin and is set in A.D. 1,000.

Patrick Ball is an American master of the Irish harp and a captivating spoken word artist. He has recorded nine instrumental and three spoken word albums which have sold well over a half million copies internationally, winning national awards in both the music and spoken word categories. Patrick's critically acclaimed concerts and solo theatrical productions have toured extensively throughout the United States, Canada, Ireland and the UK, and have been awarded grants by the California Arts Council and the Circle of Excellence Award from the National Storytelling Association. www.PatrickBall.com

Lisa Lynne is a multi-instrumentalist and performer who has gained worldwide recognition for her original music featuring her Celtic Harp.

Lisa tours year round performing at large US festivals and performing art centers.

Aryeh Frankfurter is also a renowned Celtic harper and world traveling multi- instrumentalist who went from virtuosic progressive rock violin to intricate Swedish folk and Celtic Music. He began with Classical violin at the age of three, his early studies and successes led him to explore various ethnic and international musical genres. Aryeh taught himself to play a variety of instruments bowed and plucked and most recently the rarely seen Swedish Nyckelharpa. His uncommon approach to the Celtic harp and folk harp repertoire, his numerous critically and commercially successful albums have earned him credit as a musician, recording and performance artist of extraordinary talents and abilities.  www.Lionharp.com
