Richard Durrant’s Candlelit Christmas Concerts 2019
with special guests Amy Kakoura and Nick Pynn
Guitarist and composer Richard Durrant heralds the start of the Christmas season with singer Amy and master fiddler Nick to serve up a festive feast of acoustic Christmas music. This unique show mixes chart topping Christmas songs with early music repertoire, British folk, traditional carols and solo guitar works.
Hosted by natural storyteller Richard, this is a family friendly event full of midwinter charm. Over many years Richard’s Candlelit Christmas concerts have become a seasonal tradition eagerly awaited by music lovers across the UK. In 2018 the tour was featured on BBC6 Music.
“Attempting to wrestle control of Christmas from the more commercial aspects.”
“Technically impressive guitar playing on the folk/classical cusp..”
“An all embracing winter tapestry…whether pure instrumental or paired with Amy Kakoura’s soothing tones, it’s a tasteful celebration.”

“Richard Durrant’s candlelit guitar concert is one of the highlights of the year. Durrant’s evocative playing and stunning stage set fill the centre with a magical aura perfectly aligned to the festive season. A sell-out success year after year, the magnificence of this show speaks for itself with an additional matinee performance also reaching full capacity.”

“A magical show that brought a sense of peacefulness to an otherwise hectic time. This was both a Christian and Pagan celebration without any sparkly tinsel and commercial sentimentality. Durrant’s playing was masterful, creating the right seasonal feel to this family show.”
