Richard Durrant’s celebration of 30 years on the road will be a whistle stop tour of the British Isles this July from Sussex to the Isle of Skye – complete with his enormous dog ‘Bollo’.
Many people have already discovered that Richard is no ordinary musician through his mesmerising Guitar Whisperer tour. But on the eve of the summer holidays this barefoot, stand-up concert guitarist and composer will deal out a captivating evening of new exotic musical offerings from Spain, the Americas and the Sussex coast.
With his trademark beautiful lighting and projections Richard punctuates his incredible guitar playing with stories from a lifetime in music in a show that is joyfully virtuosic, at times deeply moving, and always hugely entertaining.
A highlight with be the unveiling of a brand new ‘tenor’ guitar. This incredible instrument has been specially commissioned from Sussex luthier Ian Chisholm and inspired by Berkshire’s magnificent prehistoric White Horse at Uffington.
“This amazing new instrument will have a magical, silvery sound bringing a new dimension to each concert. Exploring Bach on metal strings played with a plectrum will be a fascinating experience!”
