The Guitar Whisperer

And that means more beautiful, acoustic music from Richard to be heard in his series of four Summer concerts…

Loude sing cuckou!

Groweth seed and bloweth meed,

And springth the wode now.

Sing cuckou!

Chalk Figures in the English Landscape

Two of the concerts will be performed entirely acoustically in churches standing in significant points in the English landscape. First Wilmington Church in Sussex will host Richard on the Summer Solstice at the feet of the Long Man of Wilmington.

Then in July, very close  to the White Horse of Uffington, Richard will perform in Baulking’s St. Nicholas Church in Oxfordshire.

I dug deep into the virtuoso classical guitar repertoire for these concerts and have chosen some truly mind blowing music. The sublime Villa-Lobos Etude No.7, Bach’s E major fiddle Prelude and Barrios’ La Catedral are amongst my all time favourites included in these special gigs.

Says Richard

The concerts at Brighton Open Air Theatre and Ropetackle Arts Centre will be amplified and on a larger scale but will contain the same solo repertoire plus a totally unmissable folk finale played by Richard with his old mates Tom Arnold on accordion and Nick Pynnon fiddle and dulcimer. Nick, Dick & Tom re-united!
