Richard Durrant - Music for Midsummer 2023

Music for Midsummer 2023 with The Burning Deck

This is a special homecoming gig for the Brighton born guitarist and composer who will be joined by his band The Burning Deck. A perfect way to celebrate the Summer Solstice.
Each summer, carried along on a bicycle, Richard performs his wonderful, acoustic music in venues the length of the British Isles. Connection with the land is central to his more recent work including his acclaimed albums Stringhenge, Rewilding and The Sleep of a King.
“He takes to the stage like El Cid…his virtuosity cinematic in scale,” Brighton Argus

Repertoire for 2023 to include: 

Book of Spells (Durrant)
The Sleep of a King (Durrant)
Works by Agustin Barrios
Durrant versions of JS Bach
JS Bach and British Isles folk

“My new favourite guitarist…Richard sits completely outside the accepted genres,” Tom Robinson BBC6Music
