FOXY LADY BAND feat. GILES ROBSON

(RO/UK)

Let’s welcome the talented guitarist Roxana Stroe, a.k.a Foxy Lady, daughter of the late drummer Corneliu Stroe, together with the remarkable British musician Giles Robson. Roxana is the only blues and jazz guitarist in the country to graduate with a master’s degree from the National University of Music in Bucharest, jazz department. She currently leads her own blues band called Foxy Lady Band, but in the same time she is active in two duet projects with jazz vocalists – Raluca Stoica and Cătălina Beta.

Masters of the harmonica like Sugar Blue or Paul Jones described Giles Robson as one of the greatest harmonica players in the world. His unique style and special voice have made him famous everywhere he performed, both in individual shows and as part of the line-up of major festivals. Giles Robson is already a major name in the UK blues scene and beyond. In 2019 he won, together with Bruce Katz, the Acoustic Album of the Year Award at the “Blues Music Awards” Gala in Memphis USA, and in September 2019 he released the solo album “Don’t Give Up On The Blues”.
