Marcia Ball,” dubbed “the hottest blues, rhythm and blues, funky piano player this side of Professor Longhair (Henry Roeland) himself,” will perform at The Palms Playhouse at 8:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 6.

The historic venue is at 13 Main St. in downtown Winters.

A Louisiana native who has lived in Austin, Texas, for several years, Ball plays a knock-down honky-tonk style of piano that blends the orneriness of blues with the sweet, rolling rhythms of New Orleans R&B.

“Ball’s music is mixed with equal parts simmering soul fervor and two-fisted piano pounding,” according to The Palms website. “Between her deeply emotive vocals and her incisive, often poignant songwriting, Ball is in a class by herself. Her groove-laden New Orleans R&B and driving Gulf Coast blues have made her a one-of-a-kind favorite of music fans all over the world.”

Tickets are $25, available in advance at Armadillo Music, 205 F St. in Davis; Watermelon Music, 527 Main St. in Woodland; Pacific Ace Hardware, 35 Main St. in Winters; and online at tickets.com, (800) 225-2277.

Tickets also will be available at the door if not sold out. For more information, visit www.palmsplayhouse.com.

Ball’s concert will celebrate the release of her new Alligator Records CD, “Roadside Attractions.” Three of her previous four CDs have received Grammy nominations. Ball also has collected seven Blues Music Awards since 2001, including the 2009 “Pinetop Perkins Piano Player of The Year” award, and was voted “Female Blues Artist Of The Year” and “Most Outstanding Musician — Piano” in the 2009 Living Blues Readers’ Poll.

She was inducted into the Gulf Coast Music Hall of Fame in 2010.
