‘The protean slide guitarist leads his power trio 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’. Pete Feenstra
Troy Redfern is a slash and burn blues guitarist from the mountains of the Welsh border. Troy’s name has been steadily rising on the British and European blues scene over the last few years and he’s been getting rave reviews from the blues press and audiences everywhere.
His raw, bold style, especially when playing slide is what turns heads and electrifies audiences with blues that has echos of hill country blues as well as swamp and delta.
