The Texas Tunes series features performers from music halls and festivals throughout the state who present great music in a variety of genres, but all with that unique Texas flair that has made the state a hotbed for fans of live music.
Marcia Ball wraps up the 2016 Texas Tunes series on July 2. The four-time Grammy Award nominee is a Texas-born, Louisiana-raised singer who has thrilled audiences worldwide with a full-scale roadhouse rhythm and blues set list.
Ball has won many awards, including the 2002 Blues Music Award for Blues Album of the Year for Presumed Innocence and the 2004 Blues Music Award for Contemporary Blues Album of the Year as well as the Contemporary Blues Female Artist of the Year. She has also won two Living Blues Awards. In 2012, she was inducted into the Gulf Coast Music Hall of Fame.
The critically acclaimed artist also has been seen frequently on television and in film, including Austin City Limits, PBS’ Performance at the White House, NPR’s Fresh Air, and Prairie Home Companion. She was featured in Clint Eastwood’s documentary Piano Blues and in Martin Scorsese’s The Blues series. Marcia has performed once before at MCL Grand, taking part in the 2013 Texas Tunes series.
