A sell out start to 2017

Richard Durrant and Ismael ledesma

What a great start to the year with a sell out gig at the Ropetackle Arts Centre in another beautiful musical collaboration between Richard Durrant and Paraguayan harpist Ismael Ledesma.

One of the reasons Ismael has been working with Richard in recent weeks is to record a new joint CD. Featuring pieces by both Ismael and Richard in addition to some original Paraguayan works this is sure to be another hot seller when it is launched in March.

The No 26 Bus to Paraguay

In April the guys are heading off to Paraguay for a tour of solo and duo performances which they are really looking forward to. And a little further ahead in June they are already taking booking for a UK launch tour which will include an open air gig in Brighton, a show at the Stables at Milton Keynes – and many more!

French Ukulele Adventurers

How about a week long musical holiday in a beautiful country house near Bordeaux? The popularity of Richard’s Ukulele Circuit Training has led to him organising this fantastic opportunity of all Ukulele players from beginners to advanced from 16-21 May.

French gite

Each day there will be daily Ukulele Circuit Training sessions as well as individual and group sessions. As well as musical enrichment sessions there will also be lots of opportunities to learn from each other. At the end of the week everything comes together in a concert. But it’s not all work as a week at this inspiring, peaceful and rustic haven will also allow plenty of time for relaxing, swimming, eating and drinking in the French sunshine.

Camp fire

It’s easy to get to as well being close to Bordeaux airport which is well connected to many UK airports and just a few minutes walk from a railway station. There’s only space for 20 people so get in touch with Richard quick on info@richarddurrant.com
