Lichfield Blues Fans are in for a real treat when American Blues Star Debbie Bond hits the town

Singer, guitar player and songwriter Debbie Bond has been paying her dues in the Alabama backwoods for over 30 years backing many traditional Alabama blues musicians in the US and Europe, including Eddie Kirkland, Jerry "Boogie" McCain and Willie King. She is a blues activist and founded the award winning Alabama Blues Project, a non profit organisation that promotes and preserves Alabama blues. Debbie's singing has been compared to Maria Muldaur and Bonnie Raitt, both of whom she cites as musical influences but the truth is that Debbie does it her way. Her immersion in the blues has deeply flavoured her guitar playing, soulful voice and original song writing, yet her sound is contemporary and original, incorporating soul, blues, rock, jazz and even country influences. Her partner in life and music, British born Rick Asherson, is an outstanding keyboard player and gives their music a honky-tonk, New Orleans flavoured sound.

In a rare appearance in Britain catch them on Friday July 28th at ‘The Original Pokey Hole Blues Club ‘ Lichfield Sports Club Eastern Avenue Lichfield WS13 7SQ

 Entrance is just £5 for members £7.50 for non –members doors open at 7.30pm
