Rodrigo & Gabriela live in Glasgow ...
Went to Scotland this week with some Swedish Linn customers to see the amazing Mexican duo ... Acoustic guitar extraordinaries Rodrigo Gabriela.
Their latest material is with a full piece band from Cuba which they brought with them ... Impressive but better placed in a dance hall where people can dance rather than a huge Glasgow gig which was literally packed to the roof so you could hardly move. The Cuban band though super talented just diluted the two stars performance but the few solo performances we got were absurdly good and got the enthusiastic Glasgow crowd rocking. 10 out of 10 for the solo's ... R&G are like no other ... Breathing new life into covers in a truly original way!
They are right up there at the top of the lists of best guitarists ever ... Amazing!
