Debbie Bond presents Blues Without Borders, a performance of original music that covers topics from social justice to climate change. Music is a mystery and magic, a universal language that has the power to uplift and connect us, soul to soul, in our common humanity.
Debbie’s music is deeply influenced by Alabama’s juke joint blues and the sounds of Muscle Shoals – her guitar playing, soulful voice and original songwriting is grounded in Alabama roots music, but her sound is contemporary and original, incorporating blues, soul, and jazz influences. Together with her husband and musical partner “Radiator” Rick,” she has worked for many years with traditional Alabama blues musicians, including Johnny Shines, his daughter, Carroline Shines, Eddie Kirkland, Willie King, Shar Baby, and more. British born “Radiator” Rick, on keyboard and harmonica, adds a swampy New Orleans edge to her sound. Debbie is a blues activist and the founder of the award-winning Alabama Blues Project, a non-profit dedicated to promoting and preserving the states blues heritage.
