Rodney Branigan

"Impossibly talented" is the description you'll hear time and again of this amazing performer...

But IT'S TRUE! Not just because he can play two guitars at the same time - brilliantly - but he's also a superb song writer, a masterful singer and performer who captivates audiences with his charm, wit and the friendliest insults you'll ever hear. An overused phrase maybe, but this is one astonishing performer who really does need to be seen to be believed.
