Top guitarist to play Rowney Green

Posted on September 25 2012 at 4:04:01

A talented and innovative guitarist is set to enthrall music-lovers at a gig in Rowney Green.

Rodney Branigan, a Texan-raised, London-based virtuosic guitarist with an “extraordinary” talent, will appear on Saturday October 20 from 7.30pm, in the last gig of the season for Bright Side Music Promotions, which brings regular roots and acoustic music to Rowney Green Village Hall.

Rodney’s music is described as heartfelt, organic progressive folk with undertones of rock, flamenco, classical, bluegrass and jazz. Sometimes he plays two guitars at once and other times he plays the piano and guitar at the same time, but his vocal skills and lyrical content are so enticing that you soon forget he is creating the sound of an entire ensemble simultaneously.

Since his UK debut at Hampton Court Palace in 2007, Rodney has toured with double award winning Show of Hands and has featured on many stages at Glastonbury, recently collaborating with Seth Lakeman and Steve Knightley.

His fast-expanding festival schedule has taken him from the Acoustic Festival of Britain to headlining the Isle of Bute International Guitar Festival in 2011.

Promoter Erin Green says, “The first time I saw Rodney perform my jaw dropped – I can tell you he is well worth the wait!”

“Rodney Branigan is one of the most amazing artists you will ever see. Not simply because he is unique, but rather because he is impossibly talented” Music Connection Magazine

“Rodney Branigan: the revelation of the year or even decade.” Blues Magazine
