Earl Poole Ball left his native home in Mississippi at age 16.. his father gave him two new suits of clothes and two $100 bills and a ticket to Houston, TX, with the admonition: "Boy, go make something of yourself.."  Earl played the piano...and he made something of himself...and hasn't slowed down yet.  Revered as one of America's great honkytonk piano players, a singer of power, and master of the stage show...Earl is always in demand.  From those early days in Texas, he made his way to California where among many other things, he played all the keyboards on the iconic Byrds "Sweethearts of the Rodeo" album.  He played with Johnny Cash for two decades also doing countless studio sessions and live shows with..well, here's a list;  Gram Parsons, The Flying Burrito Brothers, Michael Nesmith, Phil Ochs, Linda Ronstadt, Buck Owens, Merl Haggard...and Carl Perkins.  Earl has been in numerous films as well.

Earl has lived in the fertile musical world of Austin Texas for a long while now, but loves to come to Santa Fe, New Mexico, where he plays with Joe West and other popular New Mexico musicians.

Earl's rollicking, get-you-moving piano and singing comes from the heart of rock and roll country, and he was there at the start of it all.  An authentic legend whose music is very much alive and kickin'...and, with stories thrown in from a life on the road with America's finest...that makes for an evening to be remembered and treasured.

A night of rockin' fun with Earl Poole Ball, Peter Amahl, and Jerry Faires doing originals, honkytonk classics, blues and just good, improvised music..with stories attached, and abundant laughter.  These are friends in music who love to share their long lifetimes of entertaining audiences in the intimate warmth of the house concert setting, and to make not fans...but friends.
