Richard Durrant at The New Cut

8 April : 7:30 pm 9:30 pm

Highly-regarded guitarist and composer Richard Durrant returns to The New Cut for another emotionally charged, solo recital. 

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

You will also hear unaccompanied Bach played on a ukulele made from cedar rescued from the Oregon “Biscuit Fire”. Richard, a true virtuoso and natural storyteller, first visited The Cut in 2014 during his first “Cycling Music Tour”.

This latest concert comes on the eve of Richard’s cycling tour from Orkney to the Sussex Coast designed to reduce the tour carbon footprint and raise awareness of the climate crisis.

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

Tom Robinson, BBC6 Music

Tickets: £16, £5 under 18s

Box office: Online at The Cut website.

“Brimful of technically impressive guitar playing on the folk/classical cusp, with nimble runs, deft arpeggios and quicksilver fingering.”
