The Confident Tricksters 2015

The Confident Tricksters began gigging back in Oct 1983. After a break the trio reformed in 2013. Based in Sheffield and Doncaster, the band celebrated their 30th anniversary, playing a few old songs but mostly concentrating on a new set that they work on, with blues and rock being the order of the day with a slight nod to the past. This was the first time this particular 3 piece line-up, featuring Richard Farthing (guitar / keyboards / vocals), Steve Crowe (bass) and Chris Daffern (drums) had played together in quite some time.

They will be celebrating their 35th anniversary in 2018, please visit their facebook page to find out where they will be gigging, see videos of the band performing at local venues and the band's history including past gigs etc.

They also have copies of their 80s/90s albums, The Confident Tricksters 'Debut' 1987, Shipwrecked Again 1990, The Confident Tricksters (the Apple Album) 1994 and We've Never Heard Of You Either 1998 now available on CD priced £5.00 each. See facebook page for details.
