Ryedale Blues Club – Redfish
Redfish are a blistering UK based blues band, who started a new chapter in 2021, headed by the talented and highly-acclaimed singer/ guitarist Christian Sharpe.
With influences such as Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimmie Vaughan, Dr John, Albert, Freddie and B.B. King, the band have developed a delicious, bubbling gumbo of blues, soul, and funk with live performances defined by a swirling dynamic energy (and restraint) and the visibly obvious delight of personal interaction, in the moment, between five performers at the top of their game.
Christian Sharpe, formerly of The Rhythm Doctors, the King Bees and The Deluxe heads Redfish Blues Band, he is the consummate master of improvisation and dynamics. He can turn the simplest of songs into masterpieces of the art form, facilitating every musician in the moment’s performance for an audience’s delight. In his own words, and this is vital, “we serve the genre”
