Penn's Landing Jam On The River
Pianist and singer/songwriter Marcia Ball is a living example of how East Texas blues
meets southwest Louisiana swamp rock. Ball was born March 20, 1949, in Orange, TX, but
grew up across the border in Vinton, LA. That town is squarely in the heart of "the Texas
triangle," an area that includes portions of both states and that has produced some of
the country's greatest blues talents: Janis Joplin, Johnny and Edgar Winter, Queen Ida
Guillory, Lonnie Brooks, Zachary Richard, Clifton Chenier, and Kenny Neal, to name a few.
Ball's earliest awareness of blues came over the radio, where she heard people like Irma Thomas,
Professor Longhair, and Etta James, all of whom she now credits as influences. She began
playing piano at age five, learning from her grandmother and aunt and also taking formal
lessons from a teacher.
Ball entered Louisiana State University in the late '60s as an English major. In college,
she played in the psychedelic rock & roll band Gum. In 1970, Ball and her first husband
were headed West in their car to San Francisco, but the car needed repairs in Austin,
where they had stopped off to visit one of their former bandmates. After hearing, seeing,
and tasting some of the music, sights, and food in Austin, the two decided to stay there.
Ball has been based in Austin ever since.
