About the concert:
Called “the bayou queen of the piano” (Minneapolis Star Tribune), the Texas-born, Louisiana raised Marcia Ball has built an iconic career with her raucous piano style that carries on the New Orleans tradition of Professor Longhair and James Booker, blending it with a soulful vocal approach inspired by her mentor and frequent collaborator, Irma Thomas. She’s a five-time GRAMMY nominee and 11-time Blues Music Award winner who was inducted into the Austin City Limits Hall of Fame in 2018. She’s led 17 albums including her latest Alligator Records release, “Shine Bright.”
