Bluesdays: Debbie Davies
July 10, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
It took a decade, but Debbie Davies is coming to the Bluesdays bandstand at the Village at Squaw Valley. A touring blueswoman for more than 30 years, the virtuoso guitarist and passionate singer has 13 solo albums. If Davies’ tone is reminiscent of Albert Collins,’ there’s a good reason. She played in his band the Icebreakers from 1988-91. “It was like a dream come true,” Davies said. “Albert happened to be going through some band changes in his lineup and I got the call.”I opened the shows. We would do a real uptempo instrumental then I would sing one then do this big bruhaha thing and then bring him out. If he broke a string, he would give me the lead. It was a real blues jam band.” The Debbie Davies appearance could be the highlight of a Bluesdays summer that has never been better.
