This Saturday, September 11 will see Richard Durrant perform two gigs in the one day – one at Europe’s most unusual arts festival – another at a festival based in a delightful West Sussex village:
Colourscape Music Festival,
Clapham Common, London
From 12.30 to 4.30 pm Richard Durrant will be joined by special guests Brian Gulland and Stephen Hiscock to perform Cycling Music.
The special 30 minute performances of Cycling Musicwill feature Stephen on Bicyclatter and Brian on harmonium and contra-bassoon with computer sequences and composer Richard on guitar.
The trio will also perform a series of improvisations using an unusual collection of instruments including the Berimbau, Bassoon & Banjo.
Also included will be some unaccompanied Bach performed by Richard on concert guitar and tenor guitar.
…and later that evening a solo recital at the Hurst Festival, Sussex
Our much-loved maverick guitarist continues the day with a return to Hurst Festival at 8pm with a fascinating evening of guitar music.
The first half will feature guitar favourites from around the world whilst the second half will be a very English experience with Richard’s own music including an excerpt from Rewilding plus his latest solo work The Crest The Coombe The Twitten.
