This incredible Showcase of talent will feature one of Bristol’s native sons, Billy Crawford. Raised playing bass in church, he gained an early hard-rock pedigree on electric guitar. For the past three decades, he’s turned his six-string action toward the blues.
In the 1990s, audiences around the world heard Crawford’s intense work with blues-rocker Deborah Coleman. His Bristol-based Billy Crawford Band includes some of that region’s finest blues players. The fire is still burning blue from Crawford’s Guitar, as he rips through blues, ballads, rock, surf – even New Orleans-style. “I still love the guitar. I play and practice every day,” Crawford said. “It has never gotten old for me. I’m still excited about creating sound out of silence every time I perform!”
Along for the ride with Crawford are his band mates saxophonist Mary Munsey, bassist Robert McClain, and drummer/vocals Keith Chinault. This concert will also feature guest vocalists Kristy Karas, Grace Constable, Reagan Boggs and Samantha Gray. Guest K.D.Forsha will also bring his Hammond B3 organ. This show plans to deliver an amazing array of talent concluding in an all-star jam.
