Description:
O'Carolan's Farewell to Music brings to the stage the legendary life, the turbulent times and the captivating music of one of Ireland’s most beloved and celebrated artists: Turlough O’Carolan. Interspersed with performances of 14 of O'Carolan's tunes played on the rare wire-strung harp, the play tells the blind harper's story through the character of poet and harper, Charles MacCabe, O'Carolan's life-long friend and traveling companion. Through MacCabe's eyes and O'Carolan's music, we are drawn into one of the most storm-tossed chapters of Irish history.
Patrick Ball is one of the premier Celtic harpers in the world today and one of the very few to perform exclusively on the rare, legendary wire-strung harp — the harp of O'Carolan.
