File under Roots and Soul meets Rock and Roll. Doña Oxford is headed back to Ayrshire!
Dona Oxford took the South Beach Sessions stage in Troon by storm in 2015 when supporting the legendary Albert Lee - her boogie woogie performance that evening stole the show and we are sure you won't want to miss what will be one of the live highlights of the year.
We are delighted to have Dona return to Ayrshire for what will be a feelgood Sunday evening show - don't believe us? Have a look at the video below!
A keyboard whirlwind, Doña's outstanding piano skills prompted none other than Keith Richards to shout "You're a bitch, baby" as they jammed together on stage. She's also recorded with the likes of Van Morrison and Roger Daltrey, and Cream's Ginger Baker threatened to kill her. But that's another story.
Doña is all about high energy and spontaneity, and making her audience feel part of the show. "It's like you become one with the guys in the crowd", says Dona. Her exuberant, rocking stage presence and powerful soul voice has led to the apt comparison "Gladys Knight meets the Rolling Stones". Night after night, Doña blows the room away. For a taster, check out Doña on YouTube. Her "Boogie-Woogie" video has already had more than ONE MILLION views!
A born-and-bred New Yorker, Doña tightened her talent in clubs across America's East Coast before finding further success in Chicago. She finally settled in Los Angeles where she honed her live performances, session work and song writing.
Dona has released 5 albums to date and has contributed to albums by critically acclaimed artists such as Popa Chubby and Shemekia Copeland. Her soundtrack work includes music for the films "Norbit", starring Eddie Murphy, "Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins" and "Senior Skip Day".
Doña's UK and Europe tour begins at London's Eel Pie Club and takes in England, Scotland, Switzerland and Germany with the Troon date on Sunday 24th April.
