Bute’s thriving live music scene welcomes back a familiar face tonight (Saturday) when Rodney Branigan takes to the stage at Craigmore Bowling Club.

Branigan’s previous visits to the island have all been hugely well received, and with a touring schedule which now takes him all over the world, the chance to see him - and in particular his party trick of playing two guitars at once - on his return to Rothesay is one not to be missed.

If you haven’t seen him before here are a few video links of the man in action to give you a taste of what’ll be in store...
