Marcia Ball and Tinsley Ellis

BOMBYX Center for Arts & Equity (130 Pine Street, Florence MA)

Art + Entertainment + Music + Music/Instruments

Georgia troubadour Tinsley Ellis has been immersed in music his entire life. He acquired his first guitar at age seven and discovered the blues through the back door of British Invasion bands like The Yardbirds, Cream and The Rolling Stones and Southern rockers like the Allman Brothers Band. Twenty albums later and millions of miles later Ellis has become an elder statesman of the Blues world.

Marcia Ball, pianist, singer, songwriter and 2018 Texas State Musician Of The Year has won worldwide fame and countless fans for her ability to ignite a full-scale roadhouse rhythm and blues party every time she takes the stage. Her rollicking Texas boogies, swampy New Orleans ballads and groove-laden Gulf Coast blues have made her a one-of-a-kind favorite with music lovers all over the world.

The two join forces for a powerful night of acoustic songs and ribald road stories including songs from Tinsley’s album Acoustic Songs And Stories along with tasty delta blues and classics by artists like Gregg​ ​Allman, Bob Dylan and Leo Kottke.
