"Rollicking, playful, good time blues and intimate, reflective balladry…her songs ring with emotional depth." -- Rolling Stone
"A sensational, saucy singer and superb pianist… where Texas stomp-rock, and Louisiana blues-swamp meet" -- USA Today
The Shedd is extremely pleased to welcome Marcia Ball back to The Jaqua Concert Hall. Ball knows how to raise roofs and tear down walls with her infectious, intelligent and deeply emotional brand of southern boogie, rollicking, roadhouse blues and heartfelt ballads. Over the course of her three-decade career, Ball has earned a huge and intensely 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 deep songwriting tradition into a sound No Depression described as "a little rock, a lot of roll, a pinch of rhythm and a handful of blues."
