Quei Due are Caterina Comeglio-vocals and Adam Taylor-guitar. Together they play a mix of italian songs mixed with contemporary jazz influences and original music. Bringing a heartfelt blend of story-telling and emotion to their rhythmic and melodically engaging music, Quei Due take influence from many different sources; from the rhythms of Brazil to the poetry of Eugenio Montale and to the music of Allan Holdsworth. The group’s ethos is to create music which is simultaneously innovative and entertaining to any audience. “Quei Due left no one in any doubt as to their musical prowess and ability to engage with their audience.” – Samuel Moore, Musician in Residence, Arts at Trinity.

Rodney Branigan

Saturday 13th December

Food served from 7:30pm

Music starts 8:30pm

Tickets £6 available in advance from the Cafe

 

Watching Rodney Branigan play is a mind-boggling experience. You look for the hard drive, because no musician could do what he’s doing. When no assistance is apparent, you wonder if he’s possessed. Playing three instruments at once –– two guitars (a 12-string and 6-string) and a tambourine –– his musical facility is so awe-inspiring that he kicks the “novelty” tag right to the curb. This is a real musician with extraordinary talent.
“Rodney Branigan is one of the most amazing artists you will ever see. Not simply because he’s unique, but rather because he’s impossibly talented.” – Bernard Baur, Music Connection Magazine
