Rollickin’ Roadhouse Blues & N’awlins Jazz this June at the Iron Horse: Marcia Ball, Junior Brown, Dirty Dozen Brass Band

Marcia Ball, Tuesday, June 8th 7PM at the Iron Horse
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. Her exquisite piano playing and passionate, playful vocals fuse New Orleans and Gulf Coast R&B with Austin's deep songwriting tradition into a little rock, a lot of roll, a pinch of rhythm and a handful of blues.

Junior Brown- Thursday, June 10th 7PM at the Iron Horse

“I'm just a-doin' my job. I'm The Highway Patrol.” Junior Brown is a singer and demon guitarist whose raucous blend of Western swing, honky tonk, electrified Bakersfield country, and rock & roll made him the toast of Austin and then the world. Factor in his rumbling, strikingly deep baritone voice, and you've got a true original; an artist who's a sensation in country music and the fringier Americana circles.

The Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Wednesday, June 16th, 7PM at the Iron Horse

For over 25 years, The Dirty Dozen Brass Band has boldly forged the traditions of New Orleans jazz with the modern influences of bebop, funk, R&B and pop, creating a new standard by which all other brass bands are measured. They recently brought the sweet sounds of New Orleans to tens of thousands of people for the St. Petersburg Day Festival in Russia so they’re well prepared to take on about 15 dozen of you in Northampton.
