Another aspect that links current Canegreen/SSE clients: many of them are performing at London's Royal Albert Hall, which hosted the annual BluesFest in June and for which Canegreen/SSE provided a Meyer Sound system.
The Royal Albert Hall, says Canegreen/SSE Director Yan Stile, is a notoriously challenging environment for front-of-house engineers. "The nature of the building," he explains, "is its 360-degree coverage. It's a really difficult place to cover." For BluesFest 2012, Canegreen provided a Meyer Sound system comprised of 28 MILO, four MILO 120, 32 MICA, and six M'elodie line array loudspeakers; six 700-HP subwoofers; and two Galileo loudspeaker management systems.
Benson performed at the Royal Albert Hall on June 28 with the support of Canegreen, which has also provided the legendary guitarist a touring rig featuring 24 MICA and six M'elodie line array loudspeakers; 10 700-HP and one USW-1P subwoofers; two MSL-4 loudspeakers; 10 MJF-212A stage monitors; and a Galileo loudspeaker management system.
Bennett performed at the Royal Albert Hall on June 30 and July 1. His touring rig includes 24 MICA line array loudspeakers, four 600-HP subwoofers, and two UPA-1P loudspeakers.
