Troy Russell

Residency Year: 2019

Troy John Russell is of the Biripi people of the Greater Manning area near Taree, and the Gamillaroi people of the New England area. His journey with music began at 11, when a neighbour offered to teach him the fundamentals of music and after he discovered an old photograph of his father playing a banjo he learned that his family from Taree was a musical family. Russell continues to write music in collaboration with his band GiiMusic and also plays guitar with Green Hand Band.

Russell was in residence at Bundanon in 2019.
