“A sensational, saucy singer and superb pianist… where Texas stomp-rock and Louisiana blues-swamp meet” - USA Today “An irresistible, celebratory blend of rollicking, two-fisted New Orleans piano, Louisiana Swamp rock and smoldering Texas blues from a compelling storyteller.” – Boston Globe “Like most of the great blues singers, Ball has a throaty, penetrating voice and a style that manages to combine romance, sorrow and defiance.” – People Singer/pianist Marcia Ball knows how to raise roofs and tear down walls with her infectious, intelligent and deeply emotional brand of southern boogie, rollicking, roadhouse blues and heartfelt ballads. Over the course of her three-decade career, Ball has earned a huge and intensely loyal following all over the world. Her exquisite piano playing and passionate, playful vocals fuse New Orleans and Gulf Coast R&B with Austin’s deep songwriting tradition into a sound No Depression described as “a little rock, a lot of roll, a pinch of rhythm and a handful of blues.”
Ben Taylor! One of the most exciting breakout artists we've ever had the pleasure to present returns this summer. If you haven’t yet seen or heard Ben Taylor perform live, you’re in for a real treat. Not only has Ben come up as one of the hottest young singer/songwriters touring today, but he's done it his own way and with his own style, no mean feat for the son of James Taylor and Carly Simon. Gifted, funny, poetic, a master of melody and the understated lyric, Ben sits atop a pile of his own original songs and performs them with a voice that lingers in the air--tuneful, expressive, the kind of voice that makes its impact with the smallest turn of a whispered phrase.

Renowned as an extraordinary guitar player, and for songwriting talents that display a real feel for language, New Orleans-raised Chris Smither's soulful vocal style resonates from its finger pickin' blues roots. Self described as a singer-songwriter-guitarist who plays acoustic folk blues, or as a one man rock-n-roll band, Chris visits everything from obscure Chuck Berry to Tin Pan Alley corn with an uncanny ability to inhabit a song with his unpretentiously charming personality. Among other recognized tunes, Smither wrote the often covered Bonnie Raitt classics Love You Like A Man and I Feel The Same. We are proud to present Chris for the first time on the Payomet stage.
