Marcia Ball at Rhythms on the River tonight

by Dege Legg

Rhythms on the River is nearing the end of its spring run with Marcia Ball tonight at the River Ranch Town Square. The Texas-born, Louisiana-raised pianist/vocalist/songwriter brings her groove-laden New Orleans R&B, heart-wrenching ballads and driving Gulf Coast blues to the stage.

Ball's 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 loyal fan base all over the world. Ball won two 2004 Blues Music Awards (Contemporary Blues Album of The Year and  Contemporary Female Blues Artist Of The Year) for the Grammy-nominated record, "So Many Rivers." Come celebrate great music at Rhythms on the River in River Ranch at 5:30 p.m. today.
