      Boogie Woogie Kid Matthew Ball

      Thursday, Dec. 11
      Noon and 7 p.m.
      Admission: $5

      Mattew BallMatthew Ball is one of Michigan's premier blues and boogie woogie pianists. With a performance history spanning jazz fests to symphony appearances throughout the Midwest 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 Jjzz 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 and boogie woogie performing artist. With a lot of time and effort, 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. Today declared as "a nationally emerging boogie-woogie master," Matthew is helping to define a new generation's contribution to this treasured American tradition.
