TROY TURNER "GUITAR BURNER" January 13, 2018
This blues man is the real deal from the true home of the blues, southern Louisiana. His licks will knock your socks off. Troy was mentored by the best and it shows in his velvet voice and wicked guitar playing. He studied at Berklee in Chicago but his true teachers were his friends, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Edgar Winter, Buddy Guy, BB King, the Rafel family, his Uncle Ike Turner and many, many more greats.
Troy’s brand of performing the southern blues is definitely unique and his talent runs mighty deep. His stage presence and charisma will knock on your door but when he starts wailing on the guitar you’ll see the battering ram coming full force and you won’t be able to look away. There is no doubt he will be the talk of the town.
He has recorded four albums all on major labels. Please go to https://www.revernation.com/troyturner to listen to some of Troy’s originals.
Troy has played in many festivals all over the world including many consecutive years in the New Orleans Jazz Festival.
2016: Troy played the “Calgary Blues Festival”; the “17 Years After Edmonton Blues Festival” at NAIT; and headlined the first “Blues and Barbeque in the Badlands” at the Passion Play Amphitheatre in Drumheller, Alberta.
2017 highlights so far have been: July 1st weekend at Blues On Whyte’s Block Party in Edmonton; Calgary Stampede at The Blues Can, performing with Kenny Neal for two sold out shows at Arts Common Theatre; a week in October at Blues On Whyte as the headline performer and being invited to play with Canada’s Juno Award winning Colin James.
