Marcia Ball


Concert Details


The Texas-born, Louisiana-raised pianist-vocalist-songwriter is famed worldwide for igniting a full-scale roadhouse rhythm-and-blues party every time she strolls on stage. Ball’s groove-laden New Orleans boogie and rollicking Gulf Coast blues have made her a one-of-a-kind favorite with music fans all over the world. On her newest album, the GRAMMY-nominated Roadside Attractions (her fifteenth solo recording), Ball’s songwriting is at the forefront, with topics ranging from tales of wild parties to declarations of the enduring power of love and family.

A sensational, saucy singer and superb pianist . . . where Texas stomp-rock and Louisiana blues-swamp meet.

USA Today

Rollicking, playful, good time blues and intimate, reflective balladry . . . her songs ring with emotional depth.

Rolling Stone

An irresistible, celebratory blend of rollicking, two-fisted New Orleans piano, Louisiana Swamp rock and smoldering Texas blues from a compelling storyteller.
