Alabama blues-lady Debbie Bond returns to the UK for an extensive tour with dates from early July through September already in the bag and gigs that take her from Billericay to Isle of Wight and Bridgend in Wales.

Accompanied, as usual, by her life and blues partner, Radiator Rick Asherson on keys and harp, blues fans can expect to hear Bond’s support band, including UK sax master, Ray Carless, and drummers, Sam Kelly or Micky Barker (depending on dates/gigs), bring a finely nuanced set of southern US blues to the table.

Bond now regularly tours the UK, with a growing fan-base and gig list each year pushing her music ever-forward. Don’t expect that Mississippi Delta slide-sound, instead prepare for a more subtle and nuanced blues style as evidenced by Alabama’s own singular blues style, legacy and heritage.

Bond is known for a history that includes playing alongside US blues legend, Johnny Shine, and Eddie Kirkland, and as part of Willie King’s band, the Liberators, where Radiator Rick was also a band member.
