Tinsley Ellis and Marcia Ball will share acoustic songs and stories at 8 p.m. Saturday, April 8, at Stone Mountain Arts Center, 695 Dugway Road, in Brownfield.

The musicians plan to present an intimate evening of their music and memories called Acoustic Songs and Stories. They will each play a set of their own songs.

Ellis, an elder statesman of the Blues world, will perform many of his most popular songs from his 20 albums, plus some delta blues and classics on his National Steel and Martin acoustic guitars.

Ball, a five-time Grammy nominee, will play the piano and sing her often raucous and sometimes touching original songs full of the characters and places that shaped her.

They will weave the music together with stories from their years on stage and on the road. Finally, they will come together as a duo to close the night playing songs together and swapping tales of their travels and travails.

Tickets cost $40.
