Live on the Plaza: Debbie Bond in Concert

Live on the Plaza: Debbie Bond in Concert

Presented by Hoover Public Library at Hoover Public Library

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 nonprofit that promotes and preserves Alabama blues. In recent years she has turned to fronting her own band and performing her own music.

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 flavored 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 flavored sound. This unique musical synthesis can be heard on her latest album.
