Marcia Ball.

Marcia Ball.

The annual Central Park Sessions series functions as sort of a bonus in the east side's quirky summer-music mix of folk, blues, African music, and Cajun music. The year's first session features Louisiana singer and piano-pounder Marcia Ball, whose interpretation of the blues ranges from aggressively charging to that laid-back and rollicking feel that's unmistakably born of New Orleans. Veteran dobro/lap-steel player Cindy Cashdollar and Madison duo Mal-O-Dua should make this bill particularly interesting for anyone curious about esoteric Americana guitar styles. This year the Sessions have kind of a back-to-back format; they'll be back Thursday night with Foxygen, Beth Kille, and Samantha Fish. —Scott Gordon
