Marcia Ball and Cindy Cashdollar- 3/5
at City Winery New York City
ABOUT MARCIA BALL
Marcia Ball has often been referred to as “the Bayou queen of the piano, steeped in blues and honky-tonk” and for good reason. The singer and pianist knows how to raise the roof and tear down the walls with her clever, infectious, and deeply emotional brand of southern boogie, rollicking, roadhouse blues and heartfelt ballads. Throughout the course of her three-decade career, Ball has garnered a vast and extremely loyal following worldwide. Ball will be joined by special guest, Cindy Cashdollar, an Austin-based Dobro and steel guitarist renowned for her infallible ability to complement a song or step out with a tasteful, imaginative and exciting solo – talent that has made her one of the most in-demand musicians on the American roots music scene today.
ABOUT CINDY CASHDOLLAR
Austin-based Dobro and steel guitarist Cindy Cashdollar's career has taken some surprising twists and turns that have led her to work with many of the leading artists in contemporary music including Rod Stewart, Van Morrison, Ryan Adams, Bob Dylan, Asleep at the Wheel, Garrison Keillor, Marcia Ball, Jorma Kaukonen, Leon Redbone, BeauSoliel, Daniel Lanois, Redd Volkaert, and Dave Alvin.
"Equally at home picking a vintage Dobro, an old National resonator guitar, or laying down fat horn voicings on a tripleneck 8-string steel, Cashdollar is a master of bluegrass, gutbucket blues, honky tonk, swampy R&B, and Western Swing."
