Rodney Branigan - Americana music with virtuoso presentation and a touch of comedy thrown in for good measure.
The Texas-born troubadour, who learned to play in Austin, perform in Los Angeles, craft songs in Nashville and put it all together in London, has played all types of music in all types of venues in his storied career. His adventurous, boundary breaking guitar playing style has led to performance invites across the USA, India, Africa and Europe.
In 2018 Michael Eavis asked him to headline in front of 15,000 people at Glastonbury Abbey, when Paloma Faith was forced to pull out at short notice and on the strength of this performance he was invited back to headline the Acoustic stage at the 2019 Glasto Festival, where again, he went down a storm!
Rodney is an impossibly talented musician and has shared stages with likes of Jack Johnson, Billy Sheehan, Frances Cabrel, Bad Finger, Slim Jim Phantom, Bo Didley, Talvin Singh, Angelique Kidja, Alabama 3, Billy Bragg, Preston Reed, Show of Hands, Seth Lakeman, Andy Mckee and Preston Reed.
It is often suggested that Rodney has invented a new genre, which he would describe as "Full contact folk music"
