Redican was born in Boyle, Co. Roscommon to flute playing parents. He chose the fiddle and studied with Frank O'Higgins in Dublin before he emigrated to the United States in 1928. He played all his life, even to the end, when he succumbed to a heart attack which struck when playing in the Long Island Irish Center on Willis Avenue in Mineola.
He worked for much of his life for the cosmetics company Estee Lauder in New York. Redican (who also played the banjo) was a member of the New York Céili Band and a member of an All - Ireland Senior Championship Trio with Galway native, Jack Coen (flute) and the late Paddy O'Brien (box).
