Critically-acclaimed guitarist and composer Richard Durrant will open his Hailsham Festival solo concert with Bach’s entire 3rd Cello Suite played on a humble ukulele.

He will also play his Sussex downland inspired suite “The Crest, The Coombe, The Twitten” and the richly melodic “Book of Spells” – both played on a concert guitar made from a 5,000 year old English oak.

“My new favourite guitarist… Richard Durrant sits completely outside the accepted genres. He has a peculiar and wonderful mind.”

Tom Robinson, BBC6 Music

There’ll also be music from his latest album “The Sleep of a King” plus a generous serving of guitar favourites and plenty of tales from the road…

“He takes to the stage like El Cid…his virtuosity almost cinematic in scale.”
