ALABAMA blueswoman Debbie Bond is to play at Ventnor Arts Club next Friday (August 16).

The singer, guitar player and songwriter has been paying her dues in the Alabama backwoods for more than 30 years and is due to play in Ventnor for the first time.

Influenced by the sounds of Muscle Shoals, her impressive musical story includes years of performing with older traditional Alabama blues musicians.

Her sound is described as contemporary and original, incorporating soul, blues, and jazz influences.

She will be playing original songs and some familiar tunes.
