Way back in my early days in Houston, I saw Marcia Ball at a now-defunct dive bar on Washington Avenue (way, way before it was reinvented as a nightclub and restaurant corridor, when there were lots of places to see live music) called Pat and Pete’s Bon Ton Room. I’ve been a fan of hers ever since. Many years later, I was somewhat unaccountably surprised to realize (via browsing Facebook) that I knew people in Austin who were actual real-life friends of hers. Sometimes you don’t realize how small the world is. I’ve probably listed Emmylou Harris before, but that’s not going to stop me from listing her again.
