HRH BLUES 8 A New Fresh and Buzzy Blues Rock line up to take us into ’24

5th April 2023 0 By Jon Deaux

When we launched the inaugural HRH Blues, it was all about supporting fresh talent that hopefully becomes the legends of tomorrow as well as paying attention to the global legends on the cycle. This week, HRH Blues will be hosting its 7th run with attendees of like-minded people who have shown their support and made this a sell-out event for April 2023.

Our Blues Rock community has gone from strength to strength over the last 8 years so when we asked you to get involved to make cycle 8 a bit more special – we listened. We are stoked to give you a mighty-fine lineup for 2024 back in Sheffield where¬†HRH Blues¬†belongs. Turn your dials up and get ready for this! It’s Fresh, It’s new, and It’s for a lot of Buzzy Blues Rock Talent!

HRH HQHOTEL PACKAGESHRH Hotel¬†packages are a must, especially with post-Brexit hotel hikes. So for as little as¬†¬£125 per person for¬†Classic¬†or¬†¬£155 per person for Royalty –¬†this gives you 2 nights’ accommodation,¬†plus weekend passes all in the same deal!

It would be wise to grab these now as with increased utility bills galore, all hotels want to hike prices by 30% for 2024, We have these at the normal price for now, but only until Sunday 9th April 2023.

The Helsinki native, Blues Award-Winning Guitarist¬†Erja¬†Lyytinen has proudly self-produced her now twelfth studio release. The album was recorded largely in her hometown at Hollywood Studios during the first half of 2022. As with both of her previous albums, Another World¬†and Stolen Hearts, the High-Flying Finn further explores the subjects of love and loss.¬†Lyytinen was in the middle of one of the busiest times of her career when the COVID-19 pandemic struck. However, despite the challenges she faced, the entrepreneurial artist continued to develop new products and ideas throughout the lockdown period including, an autobiographical book titled the ‘Blues Queen‘ (now available in both Finnish and English), a pair of guitar tuition books and the development of her own brand of tea.¬†Lyytinen‚Äôs musical pallet is vast, encompassing the very best of contemporary blues-rock whilst inspired and influenced by the blues greats of yore.¬†And that respect for those guitar greats has been reciprocated throughout the years.


Jim Kirkpatrick is a renowned guitarist and musician from Cheshire, England. With over 20 years of professional experience, Jim has become an in-demand session player, writer, and performer and is becoming recognized as one of the UK’s premier slide, blues, and rock guitar players. Jim has also been an onstage right-hand man to former Whitesnake guitarist and hit songwriter Bernie Marsden since 2006, and recently collaborating with him and several members of the late Rory Gallaghers band on a tribute to the legendary Irish guitarist.¬†In between all of this Jim can be found playing many gigs in his local area and also touring the UK and Europe with Rhino’s Revenge (a band fronted by Status Quo’s bass player John ‘Rhino’ Edwards) as well as having appeared at a variety of festivals such as Download, T In The Park, Sweden Rock¬†and soon to be HRH Blues!


There is something about the Welsh marches. As guitarist Troy Redfern tells it, he grew up in the shadow of Hergest Ridge, made famous by Mike Oldfield. The Welsh borders; roughly that area between Hay on Way, Brecon, and Hereford: It might not quite evoke the arresting geography and climate of say Louisiana, but there’s something about the freedom of a landscape that refuses an official definition of the extent of its domain. It all fits perfectly into Troy Redfern’s world. He 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. 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.
