“A sensational, saucy singer and superb pianist… where Texas stomp-rock and Louisiana blues-swamp meet” - USA Today
 
“An irresistible, celebratory blend of rollicking, two-fisted New Orleans piano, Louisiana Swamp rock and smoldering Texas blues from a compelling storyteller.” – Boston Globe
 
"Like most of the great blues singers, Ball has a throaty, penetrating voice and a style that manages to combine romance, sorrow  and defiance.” – People
 
 
Payomet is excited to welcome back, for the 9th year in a row, Marcia Ball!
 
Texas-born, Louisiana-raised pianist, songwriter and vocalist Marcia Ball is celebrating her 50th year as a professional musician with the release of her new album "Shine On" AND a live performance on Saturday, October 6, 2018 at the Payomet Performing Arts Center in North Truro. 
 
"Fifty years have passed in a flash," says Marcia Ball of her long and storied career. Ball, the official 2018 Texas State Musician, has won worldwide fame and countless fans for her ability to ignite a full-scale roadhouse rhythm and blues party every time she takes the stage. She and her band know how to raise roofs and tear down walls with an infectious, intelligent and deeply emotional brand of southern boogie, rollicking roadhouse blues and heartfelt ballads.
 
Over the course of her 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.”  Her band is so tight, absolutely rockin, too.  Fun, fun, fun!
