Monthly Blues Night at The Bassment

Troy Redfern is a passionate, intense, free spirited indie blues artist whose ferocious slide guitar style twists and turns timeless themes and ideas to his own ends. The protean slide guitarist leads his power trio of Alex Bridge on Drums and Stjohn Milinczuk on bass, with style, gusto and virtuoso playing that fuses spontaneity with real craft. Redfern combines the rawness of Hound Dog Taylor, the freeform approach of Sonny Sharrock, the firebrand playing of Johnny Winter and the technique of Dave Hole with the ghost of Elmore James.

The Troy Redfern Band set out touring the UK in 2014, heading out to Europe in 2015/16, landing some fantastic shows including gigs with Bad Company’s Mick Ralphs, Thin Lizzy’s Eric Belle, Deborah Bonham, Cyril Nevill’s Royal Southern Brotherhood and many more (Ask them about the time they found themselves following rock legend Robert Plant on stage!) In 2015 Troy signed with the award winning Blues Boulevard label and cut his high octane debut album ‘Backdoor Hoodoo’, which brought him to the greater attention of the European audience. Recording is under way for a follow up with new material receiving a great response live so far! Keep an eye out for further updates at troyredfern.com.
