The Prattville Creative and Performing Arts Council is pleased to announce that, in conjunction with the 2013 Fountain City Arts Festival, it will honor internationally known singer/songwriter and blues musician Debbie Bond and the Alabama Blues Project. Ms. Bond founded the Alabama Blues Project in 2003 for the purpose of teaching the art of the blues to Alabama's youth so that this American music style will be passed on for generations. The Honoree Dinner will be held on Friday, March 22, 2013, at the beautiful Marriott Legends at Capitol Hill in Prattville.

Each year the Prattville Arts Council honors a person or group who has made a significant contribution to the creative or performing arts in Alabama.
