Events at Osmosis & in the Community 

Patrick Ball

An Evening of Celtic Harp and Irish Storytelling

Thursday August 14 * 6 - 9pm.  Step back from the rush and clamor of the modern world, rekindle your imagination and your childhood sense of wonder with this highly anticipated evening of evocative storytelling and traditional Irish music, in a setting like no other in California's wine country.

Patrick will offer a night of enchanting music and legendary tales in the spectacular Japanese gardens at Osmosis. His timeless tales, accompanied by the dulcet tones of the Celtic brass-strung harp, merge with the serenity of the gardens in a perfect harmony of art and nature.

Admission: $30, evening includes appetizers and wine pairing by Dutton-Goldfield, concert, dessert and enzyme footbaths. 

Patrick Ball is one of the premier Celtic harp players in the world and a captivating spoken word artist. In playing the ancient, legendary brass-strung harp of Ireland with its crystalline, bell-like voice, and in performing marvelous tales of wit and enchantment, he not only brings new life to two cherished traditions, but blends them in concert to create “a richly theatrical and hauntingly beautiful performance.”
