Don Crenshaw, aka Dirty Redd
Originally uploaded by trudeau.
Don Crenshaw is the Miles Davis figure on the scene in Shreveport. Possessed of a melodic and rhythmic style and thick tone, Crenshaw, aka Dirty Redd, sits in with numerous bands. There's no telling the jazzy or bluesy group in which you will see him. One thing is certain about the stylish Redd: he is a possessed player and he Will be performing.
At the Highland Fest in Columbia Park expect to see him with Professor Porkchop (Chris McCaa). But you may see him with Stanton Dossett's Jr III, or, who knows, with Dirtfoot. Having deep ears and mondo bondo, Redd seems to be able to fit himself to the musical needs of almost any group.
"Dirty Redd and Company will be performing at a rap up party for the Highland Blues Festival at the Holiday Inn Downtown, 102 Lake Street, Sat, Nov 18, from 8:00 pm to 12:00 midnight," says lounge manager Harmony Moore.
