VIDEO: Rodney Branigan in concert in Rothesay

Texan singer-songwriter Rodney Branigan made a long-awaited return to the Bute stage on Saturday night, wowing the audience at Craigmore Bowling Club with a superb set.

Branigan, who now lives in Somerset, last played on Bute in September 2011 - and many of those who remembered his remarkable ability to play two guitars at once on his previous visits were among Saturday’s audience.

His set combined his own self-penned material with covers of songs as diverse as Hey Ya by Outkast, Radiohead’s Creep and Sabotage by The Beastie Boys.

But it was his instrumental talents which left the greatest impression on his Rothesay audience, as the accompanying video demonstrates.
