TROY REDFERN Troy is a guitarist for whom tone, feel and grooves are his working tools, while his songs range from a whisper to a scream, including those outlandish moments when his vocals go to the edge of the world and he momentarily transforms himself into Screaming Jay Hawkins meets captain Beefheart. Troy: “I write a riff first, then improvise the lyrics and then I pick some phrases etc and turn them into the song. I usually leave a section for the solo which is usually a one take deal. I love the ad-hoc energy that comes from somewhere else.”

JACK J HUTCHINSON Jack J Hutchinson is a British blues guitarist. Described by Blues In Britain as “everything that is so good about modern blues music”, his new EP ‘Get It Back’ was released in summer 2014 to universal acclaim.

MIKE ROSS Passionate & intoxicating, Mike blazes his own unique trail - fusing his love and command of blues and roots music to create his own unique fusion. Since his re-emergence to the circuit in 2015 he has charged up the ranks to stand with the best known names in the UK roots rock and blues scene. White,Mississippi John Hurt and more. Manitoba Hal also performs several original songs and a cover of a popular Tom Waits song. His strong foundation in American roots / blues music, Confident baritone voice, and distinctive, original music have made him a solid draw at festivals, house concerts and soft seat theatres in Canada, the United Kingdom and Australia
