Patrick Ball, one of the premier Celtic harp players in the world and a captivating spoken word artist, will perform at the Norfolk Library on Sunday, October 15, at 5:00 pm. He has recorded nine instrumental and three spoken word albums, which have sold well over one-half million copies internationally and won national awards in both the music and spoken word categories. Patrick will present “Come Dance with Me in Ireland: A Pilgrimage to Yeats Country,” a musical and dramatic performance based on the life and works of William Butler Yeats. In playing the ancient, legendary brass-strung harp of Ireland with its crystalline, bell-like voice and performing marvelous tales of wit and enchantment, Patrick not only brings new life to two cherished traditions, but blends them in concert to create a richly theatrical and hauntingly beautiful performance.

Moors and McCumber will perform at the Norfolk Library on Sunday, October 29, at 5:00pm. The duo create that rare chemistry that happens when two gifted singer- songwriters and multi-instrumentalists perfectly complement each other’s strengths, a modern day version of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young. James Moors and Kort McCumber have cultivated their wide-ranging musical influences in songs that delve into love and life through haunting lyrics, soaring harmonies, and dazzling instrumental proficiency. As Grammy award-winning producer Lloyd Maines puts it, “These guys should be playing every major festival in the country. They bring it all to the stage and deliver it in a big way.” This concert is free, but reservations are requested.
