The John Fairhurst Band & Rodney Branigan
We're bringing the phenomenon known as the Wigan Jimi Hendrix to our quirky Cornish corner.
The stand-out guitarist to have emerged from the British blues/folk/ acoustic scene, a captivating storyteller, breaking out into new territory with a distinctive, gritty, vocal style and a melting-pot of musical influences.
A masterful musician and songwriter, John Fairhurst is recognised as one of the most creative guitarists on the circuit. Drawing inspiration from fingerpicking maestros John Fahey, Bert Jansch and Leo Kottke, blues guitarists Robert Johnson, Bukka White and Mississippi Fred McDowell, African guitarist Ali Farka Touré, Moroccan Gnaoua music, Indian sarod and sitar masters K Sridhar and Ravi Shankar and more recently Christopher Paul Stelling and John Butler, John references a diverse collection of world genres, blending eastern melodies with jaw-dropping guitar dexterity. His solo sets truly are a lesson in the art of fingerpicking blues and acoustic folk.
Texas-raised Londoner Rodney Branigan learned to play in Austin, perform in Los Angeles, craft songs in Nashville, and put it all together in London.
Artists are often described as having “a unique talent”; few epitomise this more than multi instrumentalist Rodney Branigan. In fact, Texan-born Rodney’s talents as a musician are as plentiful as the many instruments he expertly plays side by side.
He masterfully combines extraordinary multi instrumentalist skills with heartfelt lyrics and a rich soulful voice;(often compared to Jeff Buckley)
