RODNEY BRANIGAN – A FIRST CLASS US IMPORT

Texas-raised Londoner who learned to play in Austin, perform in Los Angeles, craft songs in Nashville, and put it all together in London.

A multi-instrumentalist with a rich and soulful voice often compared to Jeff Buckley. Described by France’s Crossroads magazine as “the revelation of the year or even the decade”.

Original blend of progressive folk, rock, flamenco, classic, bluegrass and jazz sensibilities have seen Rodney tour the US from coast to coast and travel across India, Africa and Europe, where his reputation as an outstanding live performer has led to turns supporting the likes of Jack Johnson, Billy Sheehan, Frances Cabrel, Alabama 3, Angelique Kidja, Talvin Singh, Billy Bragg, Bad Finger, Slim Jim Phantom, Bo Didley, Pentagram (India)  Shair’n’Func and Show of Hands.

“Leave to cross France from end to end, because this is what we call a real discovery. A contemporary musician as innovative as the Boulez was in his time” (Paris Moves)

“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)

Americana music with virtuoso presentation, with a touch of clean comedy thrown in for good measure.

Saturday 9th March 2019.

Doors 8.00 for 8.30pm.

Support by The Deadbeat Damsels.

£10 admission.
