On the last day of the Celtic calendar, a full moon and halloween, last Saturday saw Richard Durrant’s first gig in Ropetackle Arts Centre in over eight months and the launch of Rewilding.
A ukulele playing fox came on stage to help out with Saturday’s performance of Triskelion – and he was delighted to get his paws on an actual Pete Howlett ukulele.
The following Monday Scala Radio played the track on the breakfast show and news has now come through that BBC Radio 3 want to book Richard for a live session in late November 2021.
For the show Richard was joined onstage by the legendary Brian Gullland and Django Durrant (pictured) as well as Daisy Durrant.
The 2pm event was live-streamed with the help of Peter Lisney from the Richard Durrant Academy The album went live on all streaming platforms at sunset in Shoreham just as Richard had promised.
The live-stream is still available to view on Facebook and YouTube. You can still buy a voluntary ticket to donate to the development of this fantastic album here:
Well, the vinyl didn’t quite make it in time for the celebrations due to Covid difficulties in the Netherlands. But it has now been packed and shipped and should arrive during the coming week.
If you are one of the many people waiting – it won’t be much longer! The limited edition vinyl signed and numbered by Richard is on sale in our online shop.
The beautiful album artwork for Rewilding has been attracting a lot of attention. Painted by English artist Jon Everitt, we are delighted to announce that a limited edition, high quality, framed print has been produced by Hypergallery.
