MUSIC FESTIVAL SERIES IN MEDIA, PA
“The Women of the Blues III” featuring Alligator Records Artist MARCIA BALL

“More fun than a barrel of monkeys. Spicy, Texas-Louisiana blues, rock n’ roll and boogie-woogie…awesome piano.” – NPR

Media Theatre Main Stage 8:15pm to 10pm

Marcia Ball, the 2018 Texas State Musician Of The Year, 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. Her rollicking Texas boogies, swampy New Orleans ballads and groove-laden Gulf Coast blues have made her a one-of-a-kind favorite with music lovers all over the world. With each new release, her reputation as a profoundly soulful singer, a boundlessly talented pianist and a courageous, inventive songwriter continues to grow. Her love of the road has led to years of soul-satisfying performances at festivals, concert halls and clubs. The New York Times says, “Marcia Ball plays two-fisted New Orleans barrelhouse piano and sings in a husky, knowing voice about all the trouble men and women can get into on the way to a good time.” The Houston Chronicle says simply, “She’s as perfect as an artist can be.”
