Rodney Branigan Guitar Masterclass

ACM was pleased to welcome Texan born Rodney Branigan to deliver two exclusive guitar masterclasses to students. Known for his distinctive musical style and his extraordinary ability to play two guitars or a piano and guitar at the same time, Rodney is not only a unique guitarist, but also a fantastic musician.

Rodney’s distinctive style of acoustic wizardry lies second perhaps only to the music itself; heartfelt, organic progressive folk with undertones of rock, flamenco, classical, bluegrass and jazz.

During the two masterclass sessions, Rodney talked about his grass roots and his experiences on the road, which have taken him across the globe playing on some of the world’s biggest festival stages with the likes of Billy Bragg, Jethro Tull, Show of Hands and collaborating with Seth Lakeman and Steve Knightley.

“Rodney Branigan’s recent Masterclass at the ACM was truly inspiring. Students were captivated by the myriad of technical and musical traits generously shared by this really unique and multitalented performer.
Giorgio Serci Fellow of ACM

Rodney’s ability to play two acoustics at the same time is justifiably impressive, however those who attended the masterclass would agree that what sets Rodney apart from other similar musicians is the variety and layers of sounds he can create from both single and multiple instruments.

ACM would like to thank Rodney for taking time out to visit ACM and look forward to welcoming him back soon.
