Southern boogie and rollicking roadhouse blues!
Four-time Grammy nominee, singer/pianist Marcia Ball knows how to raise roofs and tear down walls with her infectious, intelligent and emotional brand of southern boogie, rollicking roadhouse blues and heartfelt ballads. Over the course of her three decades in music, Marcia has earned a loyal following all over the world. Her exquisite piano playing and passionate, playful vocals fuse New Orleans and Gulf Coast R&B with Austin’s songwriting tradition into a sound that’s been described as “a little rock, a lot of roll, a pinch of rhythm and a handful of blues.” Among her many honors, Marcia has been inducted into the Gulf Coast Music Hall of Fame and was recently nominated for two awards in the 2013 Living Blues Awards as Female Blues Artist of the Year and Most Outstanding Musician. She was featured in the film Piano Blues directed by Clint Eastwood and has appeared on Austin City Limits, The Late Show with David Letterman and The Today Show as well as NPR’s A Prairie Home Companion.
