Listening Room with Matthew Ball 6:00 pm, Monday, September 14
Hackley Public Library is pleased to announce the opening performance in this season's monthly concert series. This month features Matthew Ball, Boogie-Woogie Pianist. The Holland Sentinel says, "Matthew Ball is one of Michigan's premier blues & boogie-woogie pianists!" With a performance history spanning jazz fests to symphony appearances throughout the Mid-west and Canada, as well as recent appearances on NPR's "All Things Considered" and "Morning Edition" Matthew has been described as a "rising giant in the field."
Remarkably Ball's start in Jazz only began in 2001 after he attended a hometown boogie-woogie festival. He was so awestruck by the performances he saw that night, he left his career as an attorney to become a blues & boogie-woogie performing artist. With a lot of time, work, and effort over the next few years Ball would reach a breakthrough in 2005 with a career launching performance at the exclusive Arches Piano Stage in Cincinnati where he shared the stage with some of the same musicians that first inspired him to play back in 2001.
