Artists are often described as having “a unique talent”; few epitomise this more than virtuosic guitarist Rodney Branigan.

Texan-born Branigan’s talents as a musician are as plentiful as the many instruments he plays.

The now UK -based singer/songwriter masterfully plays two guitars at once or both guitar and piano simultaneously.

However, it is his ability to mix this extraordinary skill with his own heartfelt lyrics and rich, soulful voice that have led Branigan to become one of the most followed global performers of the moment and saw Crossroads Magazine brand him “the revelation of the year or even the decade”.

A passion for musical diversity has seen Branigan travel the world with his own, inimitable style of musicianship.

Having toured his native America coast-to-coast, hs desire to share his fusion of organic progressive folk with undertones of rock, flamenco, classical, bluegrass and jazz have also seen him play China as well as France, Germany and Switzerland; earning him love from new fans and respect from established musicians.

The headline act at The Isle of Bute International Guitar Festival, Hamburg, Lithuania, Switzerland, Dubia and the Wirral and London Guitar festival 2013-14 and16, Branigan has also been electrifying the crowds at that most iconic of all festivals, Glastonbury. For 7 years in a row.

Following his sponsored national tours with The Times Of India in 2007 and 2013, Branigan’s ever expanding resume now includes an annual tour of India (playing not only in the Himalayas but also supporting the country’s biggest rock band, Pentagram).

Rodney Branigan plays the Angel Inn, Llandeilo, on Friday, March 24, from 8.30pm.

Tickets cost £10 and are available from the Angel, by calling 07734 012370 or online at
