PIANIST/VOCALIST MARCIA BALL TO PERFORM IN FREDERICKSBURG!
“Based in Austin and steeped in New Orleans, Marcia Ball plumbs the richness of both musical meccas. From rootsy swamp pop and blues-drenched boogie woogie to languid ballads, Ball is equally comfortable with brash roadhouse romps and caressing love songs.” –USA Today
Texas-born, Louisiana-raised pianist/vocalist/songwriter Marcia Ball, touring in support of her Grammy-nominated Alligator Records CD, ROADSIDE ATTRACTIONS, will perform as part of Pianorama at Pat’s Hall in Fredericksburg on Saturday, February 23, 2013. Also performing are Johnny Nicholas, Floyd Domino, Red Young, Danny Levin and more.
Marcia Ball’s groove-laden New Orleans R&B, heart-wrenching ballads and driving Gulf Coast blues have made her a one-of-a-kind favorite of music fans everywhere. Her music mixes equal parts simmering soul fervor and rollicking Crescent City piano. Over the course of her career, Ball’s infectious, intelligent and deeply emotional songs have won her a loud and loyal international fan base. ROADSIDE ATTRACTIONS is her fifth release for Alligator, and the fourth to receive a Grammy nomination. Ball received the 2012 Blues Music Award (BMA) for the Pinetop Perkins Piano Player Of The Year. She has now won a total of nine BMAs. She also won three 2012 Living Blues Readers’ Awards: Blues Artist Of The Year–Female, Most Outstanding Musician–Keyboard and Best Blues Album Of 2011 for ROADSIDE ATTRACTIONS. She was inducted into the Gulf Coast Hall of Fame in 2010 and into the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame in 2012. Concert information is as follows:
