Two impossibly talented US multi-instrumentalists, Rodney Branigan and Tim Snider, are joining forces as a power world/folk duo for an unmissable UK dealer tour, celebrating the 40th Anniversary of Yamaha’s flagship L Series Guitars.
This highly accomplished duo will be demonstrating how the unique features, that have had reviewers exalting the design and craftsmanship of Yamaha’s new L Series, perform in a real live situation. Both performers sound like an ensemble on their own, with impossible instrumentation and unearthly musicality; together they are a symphony of roots based acoustic folk.
Rodney Branigan – originally from Texas, is an acclaimed multi-instrumentalist renowned for playing two guitars at once. However, he is also a talented singer-songwriter, who learnt his craft in Nashville. Now resident in the UK, he has become a regular favourite on the acoustic festival scene, as well as being a popular educator and contributor to Guitarist magazine.
Tim Snider – from Nevada, plays and loops the electric violin, guitar, cajon, and vocals, creating aural landscapes that are forceful, confessional, and raw. Coming from Reno, Nevada, Tim picked up the violin when he was just three years old. Over the years, exposure to rock music songwriters, like Ben Harper and Paul Simon, inspired him to play the guitar. His sojourns in Spain and Cuba introduced flamenco, salsa, and Afro-Cuban rhythms into his repertoire. His music can be described as a world-folk-jazz hybrid that is aimed at the heart, the brain, and the feet.
The tour will be a perfect opportunity to try our full range of the new L series and A series guitars, and walk away with a brand new Yamaha guitar. With each purchase you will receive a G7th limited edition 40th Anniversary L series capo, and our very own Dr Guitar will set up the guitar, just how you like it.
Tickets for the event are free of charge but interest will undoubtedly be high and places will be liited so early booking is advised.
