Saturday 12th October - DEBORAH BONHAM + Special Guests
@ Windlesham Theatre,
**‘The Duchess of Blues Rock’ - Blues Revue USA**
Born in Worcestershire, the younger sister of the late John and Michael Bonham, Deborah was only five when John joined Led Zeppelin, and this powerful introduction sparked in her the overwhelming desire to write and perform.
At the age of 17, at Robert Plant's house, she recorded her first demos. Deborah sent out the songs anonymously and soon landed her first record deal with the major label Carerre Records, for whom she recorded the critically acclaimed album 'For You and the Moon'.
Following successful tours throughout the USA, Deborah released her second album
'The Old Hyde' in 2004, which featured John's son, Jason Bonham on drums and a special guest appearance from Mick Fleetwood. The influential All Music Guide judged that it was 'one of the best blues-rock albums of the early 21st Century…'.
Deborah's next album 'Duchess' (Warner Rhino 2008) was perceived by the press as her finest work to date. Each song showcases Deborah's soulful singing and her effortless, sensitive approach to a gamut of styles from blues and soul to country and rock, and includes a moving duet with Paul Rodgers on 'Hold On'.
Having played festivals from Canterbury to Glastonbury, Bulldog Bash to Donington, Cambridge to Cropredy, Deborah's live performances have seen her open shows and duet with such luminaries as Paul Rodgers, Jools Holland, Fairport Convention, Ann Peebles, Paul Weller, Robert Plant, and many more.
Deborah is currently touring throughout the UK and Europe to coincide with the release of the new album 'Spirit'. The spirit in the songs and music of Deborah Bonham draws on the hurt, pain, joy and anger that come with life for all of us. Negatives are decanted as positivity, from mistakes comes learning. From that spirit comes the determination to always push forward and celebrate life, sharing experiences with her audience. As she sings in the opening salvo from the album: “Pain is going away, it's gonna stop today. I'm gonna fly”.
Deborah's date at Surrey's Windlesham Theatre is a not-to-be-missed opportunity to see 'the Duchess' and her band in action.
