DMV concert venues in Virginia continue to lead the way in reopening as The Birchmere in Alexandria returns after its COVID-19 closure with the Billy Price Charm City Band on Friday, July 10.
2016 Blues Music Award (BMA) Winner and two-time 2020 BMA nominee Billy Price first attracted national attention during his three-year association with guitarist Roy Buchanan.
Billy’s album This Time for Real, with the late Chicago soul singer Otis Clay, received a 2016 Blues Music Award in the category of Best Soul Blues Album of 2015. His 2018 album Reckoning, produced by Kid Andersen at Greaseland Studios for Vizztone, was nominated for a 2019 Blues Music Award in the category of Best Soul Blues Album of 2018.
His latest album, Dog Eat Dog, also produced by Andersen, was released on Gulf Coast Records in August 2019 and nominated for a 2020 BMA for Best Soul Blues Album of 2019. He was also nominated for a 2020 BMA for Best Male Soul Blues Artist.
